Knocked-out Permanent Tooth Hoboken, New Jersey - Advanced Dental Group of Hoboken

What to do if you have lost or loose fillings.

Lost or loose fillings are fairly common: the filling can be knocked loose by new decay, eating crunchy or hard foods, grinding your teeth, or an accident that injures your tooth.


Call us immediately if your filling is knocked out or loosens. You can use dental wax or a temporary filling material (available at drugstores) to seal the tooth until you are able to see us. Avoid biting or chewing with the tooth until it’s repaired.


We will remove any decay from your tooth and place a new filling. Depending on how much of the tooth is left, you may need a dental onlay or crown to protect it.


Always call us if you suspect you have lost or loose fillings. Fillings restore and protect your tooth; they also keep bacteria and debris from entering the tooth and causing tooth decay or an infection. We need to promptly repair the tooth to ensure bacteria doesn’t enter the space left unprotected by the missing filling.
