The loss of filling may also have occurred as a result of underlying problem, for example dental caries. Lost filling usually requires replacement of filling. A thorough assessment is required. The dentist will perform a clinical examination and may take dental x-rays to help determine the extent of the damage and whether there are signs of any infection of the roots. If there is enough tooth structure to retain a filling, you may be offered a filling  . If the cavity is particularly large you may be recommended having a laboratory made restoration like a ceramic filling or  crown

Prevention of losing a dental filling.

While dentists expect treatments such as dental fillings or crowns last many years, this depends on the types of materials used to create the fixture, as well as the quality of the substance used to manufacture and expertise of a dental professional.

It is vital for patients to give their dental fillings especially amalgam and ceramic fillings time to strengthen and the cement to harden, with many dentists recommending that brushing is avoided for the first 24-hours, or that the teeth are cleaned extremely lightly.

A dental professional will also recommend that certain foods and drinks are consumed for a certain period of time, including items such as soft chewy sweets and crunchy items. However, there is no definitive list of things patients should or should not eat.
