Too deeply drilled filling?
I recently noticed a small hole in one of my upper teeth (third from front). I went to the dentist and as expected filled the tooth. He commented it at the end he had to drill quite deep which suprised me as it didn't seem a big hole. The filling felt okay afterwards, but after two weeks or so, the tooth has begun to 'ache'. It doesn't hurt to chew on and the aching doesn't really hurt, but I can sense it there.
I'm worried that the dentist may have drilled too deep and now left my tooth pulp exposed and lead to root canal. I've got an appointment in a few days to get it checked out again.
I know its difficult for anyone to say on a forum wether or not the dentist drilled to deep without being an expert seeing my tooth before and after. But does this sound like a common complaint? I guess all I can do is get the problem fixed, however that may be.
