FILLINGS


For most of us, fillings are one of life's little inevitabilities. And although they can provide good service for many years, it's unlikely they'll last forever. They can corrode, tarnish, and yellow over time. Cracks can occur at the edges of a filling.

Teeth are subjected to lots of use and chewing applies pressure. A filling can crack, leak, or even fall out. Clenching and grinding can crack fillings. The forces placed on your teeth can lead to tooth sensitivity and extra wear on your fillings. If a filling is cracked or leaking, little bits of food can get in causing bacteria to form leading to tooth decay.

Because issues related to fillings can range from minor to major, it is important to have your fillings checked and follow through with replacing them when they develop problems. During regular check-ups, we can determine if your fillings need to be repaired or replaced.

If you feel you have a problem - a sensitive tooth, a visible crack, or if you notice that part of a filling is missing, give us a call to set up an appointment.

To help fillings last as long as possible, it's important to take good care of your teeth. Get regular cleanings, floss once a day, and use fluoride toothpaste. Protect your teeth and fillings by checking them regularly and being attentive to any changes.
