Posted by: spoony  (8 years ago)
Had treatment on an upper tooth almost2 years ago and still feeling the effects as in feeling of intense pain now intermitent numbness heat sensation a feeling of pins\and needles in face,feels bruise on touch and gum feels swollen inside.advised that it was possible compression of the nerve. i was advised that the prefered choice was to leave it to heal and was advised that this could take up to two years.alsoits worth mentioning that another explanation given was that it was the result of an allergic reaction.

Can you advise

Thanks

Hello,

The symptoms you described suggest perhaps pulp inflammation due to deep caries and restoration being put on top of the exposed pulp. Have you been offered root canal treatment on the tooth. You should go for a reevaluation or perhaps consult with a specialist such as an endodontist. A radiograph will be helpful in determining your close the restoration is to the pulp.
Also composite restorations are more prone to causing sensitivity compared with amalgam restorations.
