If you’ve just had a dental filling, it’s perfectly normal for your teeth to feel a little sensitive. This is due to the tooth adjusting itself to the new restoration. But after a few days, your tooth or teeth should recover.
However, if the sensitivity of your tooth doesn’t return to normal, you may need to revisit the dentist. This enables the dentist to examine the tooth and if it needs further treatment. We offer a range of solutions for patients who are still enduring sensitive teeth.
“Some people may have poor dietary habits or poor oral hygiene; others may simply be more susceptible to decay. If left unchecked the decay can spread to other parts of the tooth leading to infections.”
It’s fundamentally important that we can check your fillings on a regular basis to ensure that it won’t be affected by any dental decay.
Regular checks enable us to ensure that the filling can be conserved and won’t cause you any dental oral problems.
Another problem that can arise with dental fillings is the wear and tear of the tooth. This can be caused by eating and chewing. Be aware of your bite patterns and what you’re doing with your teeth on a daily basis.
Our dentist will assess that your filling is in good condition and can give you advice for the future in your routine appointments with us.
