Pain after fillings replaced with white fillings

Discussion in 'Dental Archive' started by danielleluzzo, Sep 24, 2006.

  1. Four days ago, I had five cavities filled (with composite), all on the
    upper left hand side of my mouth. Now, whenever I chew food I get a
    sharp pain in my mouth where the fillings were placed. Some of the
    fillings that I had done were also replacing the silver fillings I had
    from a while ago. The teeth are also sensitive to hot or cold. Is
    this normal? I really would appreicate anyone's input.

    Thank you!

    Sensitive after composite filling is common especially after only 4
    days. The bigger and deeper the filling the more chance for
    sensitivity. Sensitivity should gradually go away. I recommended
    spreading some tooth paste on those teeth 5 min before brushing.
    Sometimes this helps.

    However, pain on bitting may mean the filling is a little high and need
    adjustment. If this persist past 1 week, you should have the dentist
    check your occlusion on those teeth.

    I don't think there is pulpal exposure. There will be constant
    throbing pain.

    One main advantage that composite has over amalgam is cosmetic. But
    amalgam tends to be more durable, in my opinion. I have amalgam
    fillings that are over 20 years old. You will be hard pressed to find
    a composite filling that will last that long.
