I got a small cavity filled a few days ago. The dentist said it was very small and would be very quick.
Then after the cavity was filled they told me that it was deep and they put some medicine under the filling...

I don’t know what this means?? Is this a filling that is only temporary or??? The dentist did not tell me that I needed to come back or anything to get it replaced etc.. but they might have forgot?? Idk is there any way to tell if it was or was not a medicated filling?

Sometimes it might be a sedative lining like Ledermix cement. Even a Kalsogen/Kalzinol could be said to be medicated. Either way, it's not unusual, and if they didn't say otherwise, then there's no need to return. The filling is prob permanent. If you're still unsure, then ring them.
