I have fillings in my first and second premolars on the top right side. When I floss around these teeth, I feel sharp shooting pain. When I look closely at the teeth in the mirror, I can see some black patches at the bottom, which look like cavities.
I went to the dentist today. He said he could not see anything wrong from these teeth. He also told me the black patches at the bottom are only stains. He can get rid of them by spraying them with laser.
Is it possible to have with no visible indication even on x-ray? I told the dentist about the pain when flossing and he simply said to floss more and my would get used to it soon. I have been flossing for years. Is it time to see another dentist? I have been having this pain for more than a month now. I declined the laser spray because I didn’t think it is necessary. Any ideas or suggestions? Please help! I am in a quite troublesome situation.
