I had this happen about a year ago with an old filling in one of my back molars. But yes, get to the dentist pronto. In my case, the tooth was saved, had a porcelain crown put on--which of course, my lousy dental insurance wouldn't pay for, but what can you do? It was a 2-visit ordeal unfortunately.
