Do you have a filling that sits too high on a tooth? If so, you need to contact us about the problem. We can assess the situation and repair the tooth. When patients have fillings inserted, we often ask how they feel – if the filling feels to high. Even if a patient is sure the filling is the right height, a high filling can occur and still must be fixed.
How a High Filling Can Impact Dental Health?If a filling is too high, it will cause unneeded contact between it and the corresponding teeth. When it contacts these teeth, the filling will swell and inflame the periodontal ligament. The ligament grows tender because of the pressure being placed by the tooth with the ill-fitting filling. The only way to remedy the problem is to ground down the filling. This will reduce the resulting pain and increase dental comfort. You can tell almost instantly that your dentition has returned to normal when the filling is adjusted. If you still experience oral pain after the repair, contact our office. The pain could be happening because of another underlying problem.
