I’ve got my bottom left first molar filled five months ago. It was a deep filling. Two weeks after getting the filling, I got sharp pain in my canine tooth. The pain would last for hours. After a month, the tooth began to become sensitive to anything cold and sweet. The sharp sensitive pain would last for hours to days. Two months later, I can’t eat anything sweet at all because of extreme sensitivity. Breathing in air would hurt the tooth as well. I’ve tried Sensodyne toothpaste but I didn’t seem to do much. All my bottom teeth seemed to be in pain now. I brush and floss two times a day, put sensitive toothpaste on my gum line, avoided cold and sweet food/drinks but I still have this pain. I went to see my dentist two days ago and he said I have receding due to my grinding/clenching habit at night.
Why did the pain start only after I got the filling? It has just gotten progressively worse over time. Should I seek for a second opinion? Has anyone had similar experience? I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you.
