Pain in my molar with an old filling

User Level:

Posted by: dentalfear  (9 years ago)
Hi all!

I have silver filling on my second upper molar for about ten years now. Currently, I am experiencing an on and off pain from this tooth. Sometimes the pain radiates up to my ear. The tooth hurts when I floss. Does the filling need replacing?
Thank you in advance for your answers!

Hello!

You need to go to the dentist to have this looked at. It sounds like you have an infection on the filled tooth.

Hi,

Silver filling may end up leaking over time. In this case, the old filling should be removed and have it replaced with a new one.
