Can I Get Cavities Underneath Fillings?

Although a filling is fitted to treat a cavity, it doesn’t mean another cavity won’t form underneath the filling:

– If a filling gets damaged. bacteria can enter the tooth resulting in a new cavity forming.

– Fillings can get damaged by teeth grinding, chewing ice or just normal wear-and-tear over time.

– Seeing your dentist for regular check-ups can ensure any damage is spotted.

“These fillings are best evaluated by a professional, and your dentist can tell you if your fillings are in good shape, if they need repair, or if you have decay underneath.”
