How to deal with galvanic shock?

User Level:
Posted by: toothmaster  (9 years ago)
Hi everyone!

I've got two amalgam fillings,one on my upper molar and one on my lower molar, today. After the anaesthetic wore off, I started to be in a terrible pain. I felt like my face was inflamed. I've got jolting shocks every time my saliva would touch the filled teeth. I rang my dentist about this and he said it was a galvanic shock and it will go away in 24 hours.

Has anyone else experienced this? How did you deal with it? Please give me some tips or share your stories.

Thanks a lot!

I had experienced galvanic shock when I had a partial made and a filling. The pain was excruciating. The dentist applied some fluoride on the tooth and the pain went away.

I've got amalgam filling and everytime a utensil touches my tooth, I would get jolting shock in it. I will have the amalgam filling replaced with a composite filling and I hope to become absolutely pain free after this.
