Abstract: Aim: The aim of the study was to assess the reasons for placement and replacement of fillings, and to evaluate the fillings most commonly used in restoring primary and young permanent teeth in Jordanian patients. Method: 120 children with age range (5 - 10) were examined in pediatric dental clinic for the need to place a new filling or to replace an existing one in their teeth. Result: The most common cause for placement of filling was primary caries, while secondary caries was the most common cause of filling replacement. Conclusion: Dental caries is still the main cause for dental restoration. Glass ionomer and amalgam are still widely used, while resin - based composite is less used, except in cases of trauma.
