Back again with more problems. I had a cavity filled in a front tooth which the dentist said was quite small, this was around 6 weeks ago and ever since then I am getting a funny senation when i touch the area around the filling and also when I eat or drink something cold. The tooth overlaps the one next to it so the dentist found the filling very difficult to to. Does anyone have any ideas?, I walked around for 2 mths with a hole in the tooth and it wasn't sensitive at all!
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.
May I suggest something? I had a problem with a tooth about a year and half ago. Same thing, never bothered me until he filled it. I went to him 2X telling him something wasn't right. Nothing showed on the X-ray. Any, it ended up abscessing, root canal, etc. I ended up having a cracked root. The tooth is now root canaled but they could not do a post/crown because the root is cracked and eventually the tooth is a gonner. It is the fourth tooth from the top front so I am so very upset over this. Listen to me, go to an endodontist, they are root canal specialists and they pick things up on microscope better and more accurately than a dentist. Go check it out.
