Avatar n tn Hi, I had my tooth extracted in october 2008 and another teeth filled up for cavity.. After that I started to have sensitive tooth and that sensitiveness spreads to the body. When I feel that tooth sensitivity my whole body also feels sensitive and it takes a few minutes for my body to get adjusted to that sensitivity.. sometimes when i think about the feeling i feel sensivite. Now it is becoming a everyday problem. But no pain in the teeth.. will this sensitiveness go away..
Avatar n tn s white or silver. if you had a white filling maybe you had a reaction to it, if it is still sensitive after a year see a root canal specialist. I had a white filling done and it was more than a year before the sensitivity to biting finally went away. luckily, no root canal needed.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn An old white composite filling recently fell out of one of my back teeth (2nd from last on bottom of mouth). The filling was a compound filling covering the top of the tooth and going down the backside of the tooth. I never had any tooth sensitivity or pain from this tooth with the initial filling.
Avatar f tn I believe it was a composite filling because it is tooth colored. anyway, after the filling i have sensitivity to cold around the tooth. There is no pain when i bite down or when my teeth come together .I only have discomfort when cold temperature comes into contact with my tooth. I've heard that composite fillings can do this. My dentist said he got it all out he kept drilling until he did so I'm not sure why there is sensitivity.
Avatar n tn Hello, I went to the dentist about four months ago and I was told that I needed a cavity filling between teeth #'s 19 and 20 I believe. It was a very small cavity from what the dentist told me. He filled the cavity, and everything seemed fine for a few weeks.
Avatar f tn After having composite white fillings, I fell unusual kind of sensitivity which can occur. Here the tooth is not sensitive when i clench my teeth together, but will experience a sharp pain when food is chewed in particulars point of filling. I am not clear what causes this, I went to my dentist he Replacing the filling with another composite filling but the sensitivity still now a have no hot sensitivity. My dentist Also down x-ray but root is perfect.
Avatar f tn My teeth are extremely sensitive as it is being pregnant it makes it more so...if you dont drink allot of milk try taking a calcium suplement thats what my doctor told me to do plus side the chewable calcium tablet also help with heart burn just like tums.
Avatar n tn Tooth colored fillings can cause the teeth to be sensitive and painful. I would seek out another dentist for an answer to your problems. I would not jump around to other possibilities until each and everyone of those teeth are treated.
Avatar n tn I had an intense pain and temperature sensitivity after teeth filling for a month, lived on Ibuprofen. My dentist said that we might have to do root canal. 3 days ago, I went to my other dentist (who is a specialist) and he recommended rubbing gently into the tooth Sensodyne-F (almost like polishing the tooth). I followed the advice diligently... and that was painful too! To reduce my initial sufferings I've used Anbesol gel to numb my gum.
Avatar n tn Fillings can also be sensitive after having them done. Especially ones where a white filling material is used due to the bonding materials used during treatment. It is reasuring that you Dentist has taken xrays which shows there is no apical infection present or any decay. If you still have problems I would go back to the Dentist you saw.
Avatar m tn I went to the denist not long ago and got a couple cavities filled, before i went in my teeth felt fine, but after the filling i eat and my gums hurt really bad. I called the dentist to tell them the problem and they said to wash my mouth with salt water and I have been but they still hurt anytime I eat anything. What can I do about it??
Avatar f tn It can take a while for a tooth to settle down after the trauma of a filling. Does your bite feel high at all? Is the pain getting better or worse? If it's getting worse and the filling is not high, you may need that root canal.
Avatar f tn It was still very sensitive after treatment. After my insistence that the pain was still there, the dentist thought it was referred pain from the molar behind it, so I got a root canal and crown on that tooth as well, several years ago. I'm still experiencing pain to hot and cold and sensitivity to sweet. I'm sure it is one of those two molars. I have been back to the endodontist who checked the teeth with both hot and cold, and I had no reaction.

Avatar n tn I had a filling replaced about 10 weeks ago. The filling had been out 2 years or so, and some decay had set in. My dentist refilled it, and it continues to give a lot of pain even now yet. About 7 weeks ago he did another, and it was sensitive to cold before he refilled it. I asked if it were too far gone, he tapped, said no, and proceded to fill.
Avatar f tn The dentist said we needed to put in a space maintainer and pull out her 4 canine teeth. So that when her other teeth start to fall out there will be space for them to come in. Since we put in the maint-fixed bilateral spacer the space where to canine teeth are suppose to be has almost closed. I have went and seen the dentist because the wire pushes on the bottom four front teeth which are all adult teeth. The bilateral spacer in on her first molars (not premolar).
Avatar n tn Hello, my problems started after I got replaced my amalgam filling (for esthetics) on my first molar on the left side (lower side). I have never had any problems with teeth or any sensitivity (EVER) before. Now I can not regret enough how I miss my old filling which caused me no discomfort at all. I got it replaced early September with a composite - the filling was too high right after I left so I went back to get it fixed. Still not enough, the next day I went back to smooth it down even more.
Avatar m tn Apparently none of the were that deep according to my dentist, however my teeth are still extremely sensitive and the sensitivity causes my mouth to ache resulting in migrains and jaw pain. I know that my fillings are not too high because my bite is not interupted. Is this just my mouth recovering from multiple fillings and somthing that will go away on its own or is this some kind of infection developing?
Avatar f tn I have two lower wisdom teeth that either need filling or extracting. (Food collects in them and the dentist has mentioned that it would have been good to have had them out at the same time as I had my upper wisdom teeth removed.) What would be the preferable option? I think there may be a mercury filling in one. Should that affect my decision one way or the other? My teeth are very important to me and I am very sensitive about them. I am very confused and overwhelmed by this decision.
Avatar f tn ) The dentist said i need a filling after x-rays and not in the teeth that was feeling sensitive but in one of my molars way in the back of my upper right jaw. They said the cavity started from the inside of the teeth. I didn't believe this but i am not a certified dentist so i let them do their job and allowed them to drill a hole in my teeth and do the feeling. After that my tooth started feeling funny and my tongue would always end up feeling the area where they put the cavity.
Avatar n tn The pain is so severe that I will wake up in the middle of the night and can do nothing to ease the pain. My teeth have also been very sensitive, even to drink a cold drink or hot tea. I have recently had a couple of cavities filled but this did not start untill a couple of weeks after so Im not sure if they are connected or not. Even if they are connected I had a filling on the top left and the bottom right, the pain is all along my entire lower jaw.
Avatar n tn A couple of weeks ago I began to notice that one of my molars was becoming very sensitive to cold and hot. It also hurt if I sucked air in and was sensitive to pressure. This tooth had a lot of silver filling in it. I went to the dentist and he x-rayed it. He said the root looked good. He also pressed on the tooth and surrounding teeth and this didn't really hurt. The dentist said he felt the tooth was cracked and he would put a temporary crown on it.
