    Re: sensitivity after composite fillings

    Hi !
    Nothing worse than dental pain! I take it the tooth is not sensitive to hot and cold drinks( normal after a filling). It sounds like you may have loosened the filling or the cavity may not have been cleaned out properly. If it keeps up then its back to the dentist! Hope it gets sorted out soon. A toothpaste specifically for sensitive teeth might help in the short term.x
