Relieve pain in the tooth

When dental fillings and crowns fail to protect the tooth, the inner layers can come into contact with varying temperatures and food debris.

Such occurrences can cause severe pain and sensitivity, significantly affecting your eating habits. It can also make it hard to concentrate on work. But receiving the appropriate treatment can ease the discomfort in the mouth.

Strengthen the damaged tooth

Addressing lost fillings and crowns is essential to restoring the affected tooth’s strength and function.

Replacing lost fillings and crowns helps keep the tooth’s health in optimum condition by providing additional strength, functional support, and protection. This can make the patient enjoy better chewing and longer-lasting restored teeth.

Prevent further damage to the teeth

Restoring lost fillings and crowns is a proactive measure for preventing further decay and aggravating the damage.

When a dental filling or crown is lost, the seal between the enamel and the restoration may weaken, allowing bacterial debris and food particles to penetrate inside. This can trigger the development of decay again, which could spread and lead to a dental pulp infection.

Avoid more extensive dental work

Managing the lost fillings or crowns can prevent the need for more extensive dental work in the future.

Failing fillings and crowns can allow for further damage over time, which may warrant more complex dental treatment, such as tooth extraction, to protect oral health. Therefore, visiting the dentist on time may save you from a costly and invasive dental procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Lost Fillings or Crowns

Start your journey to a healthy smile by getting answers to your questions about lost fillings and crowns here.

If you delay replacing a lost filling, it can increase your risk for further dental issues. Cracks and cavities can form with the delay of proper dental treatment. It can leave the tooth even more vulnerable to serious oral complications, like an abscess. In addition, there is also the chance of damage to nearby teeth if you delay getting a lost filling replaced.

Without a crown, a tooth can survive a few weeks before a dentist is required to take a look. However, delaying a replacement is not recommended since the tooth will remain exposed. This makes it more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures, and any damage incurred during that time will worsen if left unaddressed for too long.

Neglecting to get a dental crown for a decayed or damaged tooth can increase the risk of the following dental problems:

  • The decay or cavity can get larger and worsen the damage to the tooth.
  • It can continue to destroy significant amounts of tooth structure.
  • The decay can penetrate inside the tooth and inflame the dental pulp.
  • Dying of the tooth may warrant an extraction.

Crowns are usually recommended in cases of severe decay and cavities. Your dentist will first clean out any decay present to prepare your tooth for the crown. In some cases, they may fill in the holes (cavities) with a high-grade filling before placing a crown that covers the entire tooth.

The average lifespan of dental fillings can range from 8 to 10 years, depending on several factors. For instance, the type of material used and oral hygiene play important roles in maintaining tooth fillings. Proper dental hygiene is necessary, along with regular dental visits, to achieve long-lasting results.

It may be possible that old tooth fillings can cause reactions like headaches, nausea, and fatigue due to exposure to leaked mercury. But a 2012 study discussed that, apart from allergic reactions,  there is no evidence that the mercury released from amalgams causes adverse effects on people’s health in general. Nevertheless, staying informed about your oral health may help prevent such problems.
