Gold Foil Fillings

Gold foil fillings refer to a type of dental restoration technique where thin sheets or foils made of gold are used to fill cavities in teeth. This method has been used in dentistry for many years and was popular during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Gold foil fillings involve a meticulous process where the dentist places small pieces of gold foil into the prepared cavity and compacts them tightly to create a solid and durable filling.

The use of gold foil as a dental filling material offers certain advantages. Gold is biocompatible, meaning it is well-tolerated by the body and does not cause adverse reactions or sensitivity. It is also resistant to corrosion, providing long-lasting restorations. Additionally, gold foil fillings can be precisely contoured and adapted to the tooth structure, promoting a proper fit and minimizing gaps where bacteria could accumulate.
