Question: What should I do if my child has a toothache?

Wednesday, Jun. 26th 2019 6:59 AM

Why replace a dental filling? 

Although fillings can last many years however they may not always last forever. Without knowing you can wear down a filling by constant pressure from chewing when eating. Other people also may grind or clench their teeth knowingly or not which will also cause wear on a fillings. People that grind their teeth when they sleep should wear a night guard in order to protect their teeth. You may not be able to see the wearing down on your fillings but a dentist can.
