Signs That You Need A Tooth Filling

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Office
Signs That You Need A Tooth FillingThere are times when despite taking good care of your teeth and following all the necessary dental care habits, your teeth become increasingly susceptible to issues like decay or cavities.
Cavities are also known as tooth decay, a condition in which certain areas of your teeth have tiny holes or openings that need to be restored with the help of tooth fillings.

Since cavities aren't likely to repair on their own, dental fillings help repair the gaps or cracks in the teeth, and they also fill in the holes caused by tooth decay in order to regain the functionality of your teeth.

Take a look at the most common signs of dental cavities and that you require a tooth filling.

•  tooth sensitivity
•  pain in the teeth
•  cracked or broken existing filling
•  chipped or fractured tooth
•  food gets stuck in your teeth every time you eat
•  your tooth feels a little rough
•  the floss string breaks each time you try to floss your teeth
•  dark spots or holes in your teeth
•  experiencing pain when you chew food
•  you are able to feel a gap with your tongue in your teeth

Untreated Tooth Decay Can Lead to Serious Dental Issues

It is very important to understand that if tooth decay is left untreated, it can result in serious dental issues diseases. It's also possible that you may not experience any of the aforementioned symptoms, but you could still have dental cavities.

For this very reason, it's essential that you book an appointment with your dentist every few months to keep your teeth in shape and good health.
