How do I know my dental filling is broken?
Dental fillings don’t last a lifetime and can become cracked or broken over time as you chew, grind your teeth or eat hard foods. When a filling breaks or falls out the inner portion of your tooth is now unprotected. Food and bacteria will get underneath the fractured filling and can cause:
- Pain upon chewing
- Sensitivity to hot or cold
- Infections of the nerve of the tooth
- Food stuck between your teeth.
- Localized gum irritations, infections and bone loss
- Bad breath
- Tooth loss
How do I fix my broken filling?
We will thoroughly examine the tooth and use x-rays to check for new decay. If the filling can be repaired, we’ll smooth out rough edges and replace any lost material. For extensive damage, we may recommend replacing the entire filling to prevent further issues.
