Sensitivity 4 months after filling

    Hi all,

    I had a tooth next to my wisdom tooth filled with a deep cavity. It's
    fine most of the time, but when I drink cold water and direct it to the
    tooth (which is almost never, since it WAY in the back), it feels
    sensitive. It doesn't hurt, just feels strange. I asked my dentist
    about it, and he says it's normal after a filling. Is this true? Could
    it be a possible root canal candidate?

    Sounds like it could be the expected post-treatment sensitivity which lasts
    for a few weeks up to a few months.
