Why Replace Your Dental Fillings?
Dental fillings may last for many years but eventually, they do need to be replaced. Daily eating and drinking causes fillings to wear out over time. Fillings can also crack, fall out or get chipped, which means the tooth strength and health is at risk.
A compromised filling creates a gap in your tooth making it easier for food particles and bacteria to get lodged in it. This build-up cannot be removed easily by brushing or flossing. With neglect, the decay and infection can progress to the pulp and nerves leading to a more intensive root canal or worse still, eventual tooth loss.
Replace fillings at the first sign of trouble in order to prevent bacteria and infections from damaging the rest of your tooth.
When Should You Replace Fillings?
One way to know if your filling needs to be replaced is if you are experiencing some sensitivity or pain in that area. Other than that and a visible gap when your filling falls out, it is not easy to tell if replacement is required. Only a dentist will know for sure upon careful examination.
During your routine checkups, Dr. Joly examines your fillings to see if they need to be replaced. Our advanced x-ray machines also reveal the condition of your fillings.
Amalgam fillings tend to blacken over time causing an unsightly appearance. For a brighter smile, replace them with the more natural-looking ceramic ones. At Joly Dental, we remove your old mercury amalgam fillings with our specialized suction filtering system which protects both you and the environment from contaminants.
