Its common to have sensitivity after
fillings due to a bite problem. When we fill your teeth
, we ask you to bite on a little piece of paper to mark the bite marks on your teeth. Because you're usually numb, your bite motion may be off (as its hard to tell where you are). This can cause us to miss any marks that may normally be there once the numbness wears off. Also, the paper marks it but it doesn't tell us how hard its putting pressure on, just that its touching.
