Experiencing a filling coming loose, or falling out completely can be a worrying and potentially painful experience for a patient. At Square Mile Dental Centre, we understand how upsetting it can be, as well as how important it is to treat such a situation as quickly as possible. Fillings can come loose for a variety of reasons, but the most important thing is to have them replaced in a speedy and safe manner.
With a lost filling, you’re very likely to experience an increase in sensitivity, especially in the area where the filling has come loose from. This can, in turn, lead to toothache and pain. At an appointment with us, we’ll make sure we reduce or even eliminate any pain you’re in, before checking for infection in the tooth. We’ll then go about replacing your filling and / or recommending further treatment to take place at a later date.
