Lost Filling

Call our office right away to get a new filling

A tooth that has a lost filling is fragile and at risk for breaking. Also, with the filling off, the deep parts of your tooth are exposed and you run the risk of introducing bacteria and debris into your tooth which could cause infection and decay.

Call right away to prevent these complications.

The tooth may be extremely sensitive. You may use clove oil (found at most drug stores) or ambesol to give temporary pain relief.
