I went to the dentist on Friday to have some fillings in my lower back teeth. The one nearest the back was fine, but the one nearer the front felt a little too high, like I had a small stone between my teeth. So I avoided eating on it. I went back yesterday (Monday) to have it shaved down a little and it feels loads better (like nothing is in the way now) but whenever I put pressure on it (I bite down hard or move my teeth sideways) it really hurts. Everyone keeps saying it's bound to be tender but is it really meant to hurt that much? I'm still avoiding eating on it, using sensitive toothpaste and seeing if it gets any better. Maybe it needs shaving down some more? I have to go back Friday for one final filling on the other side but i'm worried the same thing will happen and I won't be able to eat! It's really stressing me out.
What annoys me most is that I was recommended having the fillings after I went for a check up, but my teeth were causing me no problems at all. I've had this work done (which was expensive!) and now i'm just in pain.
If anyone has any theories/has experienced this... any tips or advice will be very appreciated. I'll talk to the dentist on Friday but until then I need my mind put at rest!
