Yes, sometimes cavities need to be re-filled. Even the very best restorations have a certain time limitation for ideal function in the mouth. Fillings are constantly exposed to bacteria, chewing forces, and temperature swings in the mouth, all of which can cause the filling to wear out. If your dentist sees signs of additional decay around your filling the formed since the last one was placed, cracking or chipping of the old restoration, or microleakage occurring with your current filling, a new restoration is indicated.

Your pain could be due to any number of issues, some of which can be addressed without necessitating a new restoration. Schedule an appointment with your dentist soon to determine the best solution for your problem.

Can my silver fillings be replaced with white fillings?

Yes, if necessary you may have your old fillings replaced with more modern bonded tooth colored restorations.

If you take care to have good oral hygiene habits and a healthy mouth, then a professional cleaning at least twice a year is recommended. If you have bleeding gums during brushing and flossing, that is a sign of inflammation and a bacterial load that needs to be addressed, because healthy gums don’t bleed when measured at the dentist’s office or during brushing and flossing at home. If any bleeding is present, then it is recommended that you have appointments with a dental hygienist on a personalized schedule to get it under control. Once you no longer have any bleeding, you can come in less frequently again after the tissue is restored to health. Only a dentist and hygienist can look at your gums and tell you your custom recommendation for how often to have them cleaned.

Unless removed, the effect of food stuck between the teeth will be a high amount of bacteria that are left alone to multiply and cause gum disease in those areas. This can lead to severe bone loss or even the loss of the adjacent teeth. Cleaning these areas is extremely important to prevent any disease progression. An oral irrigator, such as the Hydro Floss is recommended.
