Ways of Knowing Your Filling is About to Come Loose

Posted on 9/20/2019 by John
Ways of Knowing Your Filling is About to Come LooseHaving a filling is something that you want to think about, because you want to ensure that you are going to be able to keep the tooth for as long as possible. When the filling is put in, there is a chance that it might not stay there for a long period of time. This is something our dentists make sure to take the time to prevent when we are putting the fillings in.

Signs of a Loose Filling

There are a number of signs that you may notice that show you're about to lose your filling. One of the biggest signs is that the filling is becoming loose and you can feel it with your tongue. When you move over the tooth, the filling should not feel like it is being moved.

Additionally, any sort of pain or discomfort in the area can also be a sign that shows the filling is becoming looser than it should be. If you are biting and a sharp stabbing pain is something that you feel then this is something that you need to have looked at, because it could be the filling coming up and out of the tooth. If the filling is quite old, or if you notice that there is a hole where there was not one before; these are all signs that you need to speak with our office sooner rather than later.

If you are experiencing any sort of symptoms that are like this, please give our office a call. We need to provide an exam and repair the filling that you may be losing. Getting the help needed sooner rather than later is important to preserve the filling and the tooth that the filling is in. Call us today and we can get you in as soon as possible to get the help needed.
