Two years ago, I had a filling put into my 2nd upper molar.
Two days ago, after flossing it, the filling came out. There is only the exterior wall remaining, that has gone black. An X-ray reveals some infection at the root.
The dentist who performed the filling told me that it needs to come out. However, I am wondering if I could have it capped or else. I am not in pain and it does not bother me. I have started eating lots of garlic to reduce the infection at the root of the tooth and keep the pain away.
Thanks in advance for your answer.
