what problems can you have with dental fillings?

It is normal for teeth to feel sensitive after a filling as the tooth adjusts. However, after a few days, this soon subsides.

If the sensitivity does not dissipate, then you may need to revisit to determine whether the tooth requires any further treatment. 

Subsequently, it is important you have regular check-ups to re-examine each filling to make sure they are not deteriorating.

Some people may have poor dietary habits or poor oral hygiene; others may be more susceptible to decay. If left unchecked, the decay can spread to other parts of the tooth, leading to infections.

If you have had fillings for several years and are experiencing symptoms like tooth pain, please book in for a check-up. We’ll conduct a detailed exam of the biological status of your mouth to check for any infections and to determine the structural integrity of your smile.
