You’ve gone through the care of getting your cavities filled. When a filling falls out, your tooth is once again at risk. The cavity is exposed, the tooth and gums are painful, and you are at risk of infection.

It is not uncommon for a filling to fall out – especially if there are other oral health issues looming under the surface putting your teeth at risk. When a filling falls out, it is critical that you address the underlying cause.
There are many reasons why a filling might come loose, including:
- Grinding your teeth
- Clenching your teeth
