Broken fillings are due to normal chewing, but are accelerated when patients grind their teeth.
Tooth sensibility when eating hot/cold food or beverages.
A broken filling allows food and bacteria to penetrate the tooth, which would in turn create a cavity under the existing filling. If not treated, the cavity can move to the pulp and lead to a dental abscess.
Replacement of filling.
