Filling problem - Overflowing dental fillingThe overflowing dental filling is a problema generated by a bad filling (or amalgam). A poorly performed dental filling (or amalgam) that overflows may be a major source of accumulation of food debris and plaque, which can cause cavities to re-create beneath the filling. In this case, the filling should be repeated eliminating the remains of cavities and leaving a correct contact point with the adjacent tooth.
