One of my teeth was filled a few years ago. Last month it became painful and an emergency dentist took the filling out. He found a decay under it and told me I would be needing a canal treatment. He drilled the decay out and he put a temporary filling on it. When I visited my regular dentist, he said he'd need to replace it with a
permanent/replacement filling. It was no longer painful after a few weeks. I am confused now as to who is right between the two dentists who checked my tooth. Anyone who's into temp filling? Will I get numb if the is taken out? Your answers are highly appreciated.
