pain with pressure


I had a white filling replaced about a month ago. The old one had chipped a bit and there was a cavity there again. The dentist replaced it with a white one again. It was not a large filling.
It feels fine now, not sensitive to cold or hot. But if I eat anything hard or crunchy it hurts. I have read that sometimes tiny air bubbles can form in the filling and can cause this type of pain and it will resolve with time. I have no other symptoms. No pain at all if I'm not chewing something. And my gum looks healthy.
Any ideas? Should I just wait a bit? Or should I go back?
I have an insane fear of the dentist, and I'm fearful of him even messing around with it. Or saying the dreaded word of extraction or root canal!!!

Re: pain with pressure

It could be that it did not bond correctly and there is air bubbles. That may or may not resolve itself. You also may need to have your bite adjusted. Tou may be hitting that tooth first. The filling may need to be grinded down a bit.

Have your dentist check it.

Re: pain with pressure

Ok, I am hoping it does resolve itself. I'm going to wait a few days as my dentist is off for the holiday and I have no pain. Hopefully with time it will go away. Thanks for the reply.
