Have a cavity under your filling?

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.

Key takeaways:

– 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.
