Tooth pain after fillings and replacement fillings, need help!
I got five not very deep fillings done at the end of last year with composite, white material. All the fillings in my mouth are white and I never experienced problems with that in the past. After the work, my teeth never stopped aching, and it hurt too much to chew on them.
I got three adjustments, and some of the initial tension at night subsided but all the other symptoms (not being able to bite down without pain, sensitivity, etc) persisted. I also started wearing a night guard, and when there was no way it could be the bite or an adjustment issue, got x-rays - and nothing looked wrong to the dentist. Also - the cavities, according the dentist, weren't close to a nerve.
So after all the adjustments and no relieve, the dentist replaced the 3 fillings on the bottom using a different bonding method and supposedly a desensitizing agent. That was over 2 weeks ago, and the teeth are just as bad.
Pain to cold and hot.
Pain when biting down, or tapping with pressure on the affected teeth.
Aching, especially at night.
I use sensodyne toothpaste and ibuprofen, but it doesn't help.
The dentist has no idea why it hurts, but I can't even eat on that side of my mouth, so it's been a nightmare for over 2 months now.
These teeth didn't hurt at all to bite down when I just had the original cavities.
What could possibly still cause this that wouldn't show up on the x-rays?
And what would affect all 5 teeth, with 3 of them getting replacement fillings and the issue persisting?
