I had four fillings done in the past 5 months. The top two were no issue but the bottom two ugh.


In filling the bottom one tooth I felt some pain. The dentist said she had to drill one more as the tooth there was thinner. They are. Afterwards biting there HURT. I felt it jolt right down to my root. They were small fillings. I went back a couple of times and had the filling shaved and it was better. However anytime I eat anything small and hard it hits the two back molars in between in a way it hurts my teeth. It does not hurt my root at all and i do not believe it is the filling. Another dentist in the office said the fillings looked fine including my dentist who did them. They do look okay. I can eat steaks, chicken, some chewy things etc. But say I eat ice cream with jimmies (which I cannot now) and the jimmy hits the one cusp down to the two teeth they hurt. I have been back countless times and all really looks okay. Could it be because my tooth structure changed there? Both fillings are in between the teeth there. Outside of me getting another opinion I think I am just no longer able to eat somewhat hard food there. A new x ray of the tooth looked okay to. I do trust my dentist and she is great but cannot believe a crown or anything else would need to happen on two small fillings :(

Post up the Xrays, either before or after to get us started.
