Why does mineral salt stop moblar sensitivity/pain

User Level:

Posted by: ECT100pa  (4 years ago)
I've been having molar sensitivity due to aggressive filling redo with resin composite, white plastic on and off during the past one year. I would feel sensitivity only when I eat or drink, but not all the time. However, since I started brush my teeth with mineral salt, sensitivity has noticeably reduced, but I still feel uncomfortable biting hard food with the affected molar. If mineral salt is helping with molar sensitivity that started with a redo of a filling, any opinion what that would mean? I'm hoping that my molar didn't get messes up enough to need a root canal down the road. (As of current, I'm certainly not in molar pain or any pains that's constant.)

The salts may be occluding the exposed dentinal tubules that were left open with the composite. Just conjecture.

Moral of the story is to be very careful having direct composite resins placed on posterior teeth.

Who can say what the pulp will finally do? Might live, might die. Composite resins utilize very acidic bonding resins which can play havoc with the pulp.

What are the symptoms that indicates the pulp is dying?

If the sensitivity doesn't get worse, for maybe another year, could that mean the pulp has a chance of surviving?

Could avoiding chewing with the molar in question give it a little better chance of saving the pulp? The dentist who did the filling said not chewing with the molar is not good.
