Is this a cavity?
Since about a week, my last molar on the upper right is sensitive when I brush my teeth. I can't say it's pain but something feels funny.
It is only when I brush my teeth. Not when eating, drinking or with hot or cold.
I had my wisdom teeth removed in April, but since it is now July I doubt that could have anything to do with it.
When I just brush the tooth itself I don't feel anything. I just feel it when I brush in the gum area, especially when I brush the back of the tooth (where the wisdom tooth used to be next to it). Again, it's not really pain, more a sensitivity. My gums feel fine otherwise and there is no bleeding or anything like that.
I had my last full check up at the dentist in May. Everything looked good then, no cavitities.
I don't have much experience with cavities. Could this be one? Dentistry in my country is pretty expensive I since I've just been in May I don't want to rush there again.
I've been putting some toothpaste for sensitive teeth on the spot each night before going to bed. This seems to make it a little less.
Please give me your opinions. Is this a cavity and do I need to see a dentist or is this just a sensitive tooth?
