Fillings-Lost Filling, Lost Crown-What to do if your filling falls out

What Are Fillings?

Fillings are materials used to replace missing tooth structure. There are many different types. Each is used for specific reasons. There is no ideal material with all the desired physical, chemical and biological properties. The most common filling materials include, amalgam(silver filling), composite(tooth coloured filling) and gold.

What To Do If Your Filling Or Crown Falls Out?

If you loose your filling or dental crown, the key to fixing the issue is to get in touch with a dentist as soon as possible. Your normal dental office may be closed and in this case you will need to contact an emergency dentist to help take care of your dental problem immediately. The dentist will advise you on if the filling can be repaired and with the best material to handle the issue.

What Do I Do To Avoid Needing Fillings?

You can prevent tooth decay with regular dental hygiene and regular dental visits. This will prevent the need for a filling or dental crown from problems that arise from tooth decay, plaque, and tatar.
