I suffer from dental anxiety but am able to be treated. Today my son bumped my in the jaw and I lost a large, composite filling from a molar. Filling was only two years old. Feels like most of tooth has gone . I've made an emergency appointment for tomorrow AM for a temp filling or replacement filling depending on time available. I'm scared but stupidly I'm more scared of toothache or the filling falling out again and wondered if I should ask for extraction. This will be the third time the tooth has been filled. Had a ten year old failing amalgam replaced with composite as my private dentist only does white fillings. I've taken paracetamol even though I don't have pain yet. Worried about sleeping tonight as I grind in my sleep. Should I use my mouth guard and is the toothache likely to start later .
