Why do composite fillings fall out?

Composite restoration/fillings do not last forever. It can be break or loosen after along period of time. The everyday chewing, /grinding can break and weaken the existing composite filling. 

The retention of plaque on the tooth can risk recurrent decay around the existing composite filling. 

 

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
