About 2-3 months ago I have had a couple teeth filled with the white filling because i had a couple small cavities.
I have been brushing my teeth at least twice a day (morning and night) and flossing at night. That is my regular routine. Last night when I was flossing my teeth, I noticed a tiny black dot on one of the teeth I had filled. It is pretty much touching the filling. How could this be a cavity already? So as I looked at the other teeth I had filled, the same thing. A tiny black dot right almost touching the filling. None of the teeth seem sensitive at all.
It upsets me that this is only on the teeth that I just recently had filled. No others. Did they maybe not clean out all of the cavity before they filled it and now it is just getting worse? Do I have to get the re-filled?
