Hi everyone,
I got a filling on one of my bottom molars about a month ago. Lately, I felt like it messed my bite up. I went to the dentist about four times to have it looked at but she kept on saying everything was fine. Should I seek for a second opinion? I feel like something is wrong when I bite down. Please help. Thanks.

Well, most of the time patients can detect a micron or two of difference, and that is not much. Have him check the highness of the filling in all lateral movements.

Four times and your dentist finds everything is fine? Well, I'm not too sure about a second opinion but at this stage, I'd probably try anything (i.e. trim it further down) to avoid these back and forth trips and the consequent frustration and inconvenience it might cause.

Hello, usually after a new filling it feels a little awkward but you get used to it after a while. In your case if it bothers you so much your dentist should readjust your bite. He should use an articulating paper and ask you to move your jaw side to side then forward to make sure there are no high points on the filled tooth.

We are very sensitive when it comes to having something high on our teeth or even something as thin as popcorn skin stuck between out teeth.
