| | Reoccuring cavities after they've been drilled 'n' filled?
I've had 2 or 3 cavities filled at my old dentist over the years (I've recently switched - they didn't care about the patients, just as long as they were paid on time. Horrible story.)...but they always seem to come back in the same place after he filled them, but years later. For example, 4 years ago I had one on one of my front teeth in the back (which was embarrassing, to say the least), and he fixed it, but now I think it's coming back. I don't have the money to go to the dentist soon - at the beginning of the year I will though - so I cannot verify anything.
Could it be the way the dentist filled the cavity? Or are you more prone to a cavity in the same spot as you've had before? Or is it my fault for not taking care of my teeth better?
