If a filling becomes cracked or damaged, cavities can occur beneath it.
– If your filling wasn’t sealed properly or you grind your teeth, a gap can form allowing harmful bacteria to enter, leading to decay.
– If left untreated, severe decay can occur resulting in the need for a root canal filling.
– Your dentist can check for signs of damage and ensure any cracked fillings are replaced as soon as possible.
Make sure you book regular checkups!
