What should you do when your tooth filling falls out?

get it refilled

If the Dentist says the tooth cracked because of grinding and not because of the filling he put in 2 weeks ago is this correct?

it is most likely the tooth had a small crack in it anyway. the tooth was alittle"high"from the new filling and the extra pressure from biting on it, cracked the tooth. usually after a new filling, you should go back to have the filling polished which strengthens the filling and adjusts the bite.

What happens when a filling falls out and you dont have it refilled?

Enamel is what protects the tooth, when your tooth needs a filling, it is because that enamel is no longer in that area. As you have no enamel where your filling was, it is highly likely that the hole will get bigger. It's much better to get it filled again to prevent further problems.

Is it dangerous if a dental filling that you have had for decades containing mercury amalgam falls out?

No. There is very little mercury in a filling. A white filling will have more shrinkage with time which will cause them to need to be replaced, long before a silver filling. But you should get the tooth fixed right away.

How will the dentist treat a tooth with a small hole in the front of it?

The whole is most likely from a cavity so they will put a filling in it. Most likely the dentist will get you numb. When you are numb they will drill out any decay and then shape the whole so it will hold a filling properly. If it is a front tooth, you will get a tooth colored filling. If it is a back tooth, you could get a silver filling or a tooth colored filling. That depends on your insurance, the docotor and you. If you have more questions, the dentist should answer any of them before beginning the work.

Its basically a large filling. A three surface filling can be described in example as "MOD Filling" which would the the mesial, occlusal, facial surfaces, if indeeed, that is the 3 surfaces the filling is going. Mesial and distal represent the different sides of the tooth, and occlusal is the top - center surface of the tooth. So MOD would be a filling ranging across the top of the tooth.
