Hi, I went to the dentist a few weeks ago to get a filling on my back two bottom right teeth, and now i cant chew on that side because everytime i chew and food is pushed into those two teeth it gets sensitive?? im not sure how to describe it, its like eating ice without the cold and shivers. The thing is theyre normal doing anything else and in fact they were fine the first few weeks after cause i was able to chew on that side and now this just started. i can drink cold and hot drinks without any bother. they only get triggered when food is being chewed. anyone know what could have gone wrong?? im gonna go back to the dentist to see. i didnt think the doctor did a good job in the first place anyway, ill be seeing a different one.

Sometimes if the cavities are deep the teeth can take awhile to settle down. I had one that was sensitive, on and off, for a couple months. Give it time, but if the pain worsens it could mean you need a root canal.

Tooth sensitivity: A tooth that has just had a filling placed will be more sensitive to hot foods and cold foods, air temperature, and the pressure of biting. This type of tooth pain after filling a cavity should resolve within a few weeks. If not, contact your dentist.
•Cracked or loose tooth fillings: Tooth pain after filling a cavity can occur if the filling is not fitting properly to the tooth, or if it develops cracks. If you suspect that your tooth pain is caused by a cracked or ill-fitting filling, contact your dentist.
•Allergic reaction to tooth fillings: Some people have allergic reactions to the material used for their fillings, such as silver. To help avoid tooth pain after filling a cavity, be sure to tell your dentist about any allergies when discussing your filling choices.
