Do you know that it’s still possible to get cavities even if you have tooth fillings? Although fillings are meant to protect the tooth from cavities, some patients still have problems.
- If the seal is not placed properly, a slight gap will allow bacteria to form under the filling thus facilitating a cavity.
- Fillings get damaged from teeth grinding and chewing on hard things like pens and toys.
- Avoid acidic and sugary foods to prevent cavities.
Take care for your fillings by visiting the dentist regularly for checkups.
