Symptoms Your Filling Will Need Replacing Soon


Posted on 10/11/2021 by Evan Admin
Symptoms Your Filling Will Need Replacing SoonDental fillings are designed to be tough and should last for a long time. However, they can wear down or get damaged. In that case, you will need new dental fillings. Some of the signs that show you need to replace your dental filling soon include a cracked filling, sensitivity, painful tooth, and if the filling has fallen out.

A Cracked Filling


A dental filling can crack due to wear and tear. Normally, it takes many years for a dental filling to crack. However, it might crack sooner if you grind your teeth. Having a cracked dental filling is dangerous for your oral health because bacteria can enter your tooth. As a result, you could develop oral conditions like tooth decay. While most cracks on dental fillings are easy to notice, some will need x-rays to identify. This is why it is important to come in for oral checks on a regular basis.

Sensitivity


Sensitivity to hot or cold beverages is another sign that you need to replace your dental filling. This happens when dental fillings don't cover both sides of your teeth. As a result, there will be an opening that lets the beverage enter a damaged tooth. It is important to replace your filling immediately you notice such symptoms.

The Filling Has Fallen Out


When you have lost part or all of your filling, you will have to replace it. If this happens, get in touch with us immediately. When you lose your filling, you will experience a little discomfort and sensitivity when the tooth is exposed to air. The same will also happen when you drink hot or cold beverages. Getting immediate treatment from our professionals is paramount in such cases.

A Painful Tooth


If a previously filled tooth is experiencing some excruciating pain, it could be a sign of a damaged dental filling that needs replacement. Schedule a consultative appointment with us for more information on the signs that your filling needs replacement.
