Sensitivity after getting a composite filling

User Level:
Posted by: bigbite  (9 years ago)
Hi all!

Three weeks ago, I got composite fillings on 2 upper molars and on a lower molar. The cavities were just small and they were not that deep. Since I got them, I have had nothing but problems. All of them hurt when I chew. The dentist said, the fillings were way too high and he adjusted my bite. It helped for a few days, but now whenever I bite down on something the teeth hurt so bad. They are are even sensitive to cold drinks/foods now and I also feel pain when I breath in cold air. What can I do? Is it normal to have sensitivity for a few weeks after getting a composite filling? Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hello Bigbite!

It is normal to experience some sensitivity after having composites done because these are technique sensitive. If you do not see any improvement in a couple of days or weeks, go back to your dentist and have him/her check your occlusion.

Try changing your toothpaste to sensitivity toothpaste. You may want to go back to the dentist to have your bite checked again
