Even the best tooth fillings will eventually fall out, develop cracks, and develop other issues. When this occurs, you may be concerned about what it means. In some cases, a tooth Filling may fall out naturally — dental fillings weaken after about 10 years, so it’s not unusual for them to fall out.
In some cases, however, you may lost tooth Filling due to underlying tooth decay or dental problems. In either case, you must seek the services of an emergency dentist because your teeth are now susceptible to bacterial infections. This article will walk you through the process of replacing a lost tooth Filling.
If your tooth filling becomes loose, carefully extract it to avoid swallowing it. Swallowing the dental filling or crown by accident isn’t a problem because it easily passes through the system, but breathing it in could cause lung complications. As a result, you must take it out.
Find a dentist who can see you for treatment right away.
You must immediately contact a dental office to schedule an appointment after removing the filling. You can get a last-minute emergency appointment with a dentist if the dental clinic is open. If the dental clinic is closed, you may have to wait until another time because a lost filling isn’t always considered a time-sensitive dental emergency.
Use a temporary filling material to protect the exposed or vulnerable tooth.
The main reason to see a dentist right away is to protect the tooth, which is now exposed and vulnerable. If you can’t see the dentist right away, you should take some precautions to protect your vulnerable teeth.
Maintain optimal dental care for the exposed tooth.
You should always maintain good oral health, but you should be extra cautious if you’ve recently lost tooth Filling . To prevent bacterial accumulation and infection, brush the insides of the affected tooth gently, remove all food debris, and rinse your mouth with warm salt water several times per day.
For pain and discomfort, use over-the-counter pain relievers.
Patients frequently experience pain and discomfort as a result of the nerves in the tooth being exposed to environmental factors and hot/cold temperatures after the crown/filling is removed. Applying store-bought clove oil or taking over-the-counter pain medications can numb the sensation or dull the pain.
Avoid foods that can harm your vulnerable tooth.
To avoid bite stress or pressure while your tooth is weak and vulnerable, you must chew all foods from the opposite side of your mouth. You should also avoid foods that increase your chances of getting a bacterial infection or damaging your teeth, such as sweets, beverages, fizzy drinks, foods/beverages with extreme hot/cold temperatures, and so on.
Until your appointment, keep your tooth clean.
Simply put, you must take all necessary precautions to ensure the overall safety of your weakened tooth until your dental clinic appointment.
