I had a cavity next to a tooth that I was getting an implant on. Before putting on the crown on the implant, my dentist filled the cavity with composite filling and cemented the implant crown in place with a "temporary" cement. Anyway, the filling came out about a year later, he refilled it a few days ago and has come out again. What should I do?

  • If the cavity is not very big then it should not come out like this but if it is coming out and is not very deep then it is better you get a crown on that tooth. Now you have to discuss with your dentist that whether that tooth needs root canal treatment before the crown or there is no need of the root canal treatment. The decision whether to go for the root canal treatment should be done or not depends on the extent of the cavity and that your dentist can ascertain after taking the X-ray.
