My Filling Came Out! What Should I Do?

Dental Filling

Overtime fillings may loosen due to normal wear and tear, a development of a cavity underneath the filling, aggressive brushing or flossing, or biting/grinding hard enough to break the filling. The first thing you should do is contact Cooper City Family Dentistry, located near Davie, FL, and make an appointment to assure there are no underlying reasons that caused the filling to come out. 

In the meantime, practicing good oral hygiene will keep the area nice and clean. After eating, brush gently and rinse with warm salt water to prevent food and bacteria from accumulating. It also is recommended to avoid chewing on the affected side. This reduces discomfort.
