Question:

I have 2 weeks ago had a filling in my 5. tooth in right over the mouth (spoken from the center). With the same stunning stopped working, I could feel a significant sensitivity when I chew on it. In addition, I can feel a strong tension in the palate and sometimes also in the tooth. These Symptoms came with the same the anesthesia stopped working and their intensity has not changed in the 2 weeks that have passed since then. Incidentally, may I mention that the tooth is hypersensitive to hot or cold. As well as to the dentist after he had made the filling took time to adjust the filling to my bite. What can mon be the reason ?

Answer:

Dear Martin,

It may be that the teeth become sensitive after they get a new filling, especially plastic, but if this sensitivity does not disappear, or not to keep out, you must seek out your dentist again.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards
