Hello,
I just had my first filling about a week and half ago. I was told it was a very small cavity that shouldn’t have been bothering me, but I have pretty sensitive teeth.
The filling was initially sore and sensitive but it seemed to calm down a bit.
It’s still quite sensitive to cold and sensitive to pressure when I bite down in certain areas near the filling. I’ve never had dental issues really before and I know it can take teeth a bit to calm down. I’ve had some people tell me I should go back and have it looked at, others have told me to just wait it out and that it can take up to a month to settle down.
I’m just kinda worried about it. Does this sound normal? The bite seems fine to me and isint making contact in any odd spots with my lower teeth, but obviously I’m not a dentist.
Thank you!

You can buy a toothpaste that might help your problem: https://us.sensodyne.com/products/. It is also a good website that talks about what causes sensitivity and it also tells you how their toothpaste works. So feel free to explore that website and it might help?

My wife always used that toothpaste because she had sensitive teeth.

I already use Sensodyne and it does work well. Just issues with this molar now that I’ve had it filled. I’ll give it some more time and see what happens.

It suddenly acted up again at work last night while eating. It’s been sensitive now even when not eating or drinking. I also noticed, flossing hurts the front part of the tooth where the cavity was. I wonder if some of the filling chipped off?
I’ll give it the rest of today to see if things calm down, if not I’ll call the dentist tomorrow. I’ve been in there constantly lately ��
