Most fillings will last a lifetime without any major issues. Still, it may be possible to develop a cavity even if a filling is present. What are some of the reasons why your teeth could be at risk?
Let us take a look at three common situations which a dentist can evaluate.

- Spaces between the tooth and the filling can trap food and debris.
- Improper brushing and flossing techniques are another “root” issue.
This is why you should see a dentist regularly, to catch complications like this.
