See your dentist: There can be different reasons for a filling to fall out. There can be decay under the old filling, trauma to the tooth, change in the bite, etc. See your dentist as soon as possible

Please tell me if I have to pay for a filling adjustment?

Shouldn't: This should not be a problem, unless it has been an extremely long time (months). Most dentists stand behind their treatment and will be happy to make this better for you. Good luck.
A 42-year-old member asked:

Please tell me if I should be worried about my amalgam filling?

Not to worry: Amalgam fillings have been used on billions of teeth for over 150 years... You'd think by now we would know if there was a health issue with their use. If you would like, you could always have your filling changed to a white composite... But it's not necessary.
