Re: Sensitive Tooth After Filling
I know you posted this forever ago, but I was wondering how everything turned out with that tooth. I am in the same situation now--I had a small cavity filled almost 2 months ago and have been uncomfortable ever since. The tooth never hurt when I had the cavity, but since I got it filled, it is pretty sensitive to hot and cold and I've been avoiding chewing on that side of my mouth just to give the tooth a break. I've been to the dentist twice recently for filling adjustments but neither have helped, and I've been using this Pronamel toothpaste that is choc-full of fluoride. My dentist was mystified because the filling wasn't very big (or so she says--it was pretty high when I got it but you'd think the adjustments would have helped). Since you had a small cavity just like me I was wondering what ended up happening--I hope everything worked out. I'm really afraid that I might have to get a root canal, because that is what the dentist said when I called today, though personally I think that is a really rash recommendation since she hasn't even X-rayed the tooth, and it never gave me a problem until I got it filled.
