weird tooth sensitivity
« on: May 01, 2014, 08:25:32 PM »
OK, so I went to see a dentist a few weeks ago.  I had no problems whatsoever.  But he did a small filling on one of my teeth on the upper jaw.  The part where the tooth and the gum meet.  He warned me I might have sensitivity to cold for a while.  But actually I didn't.  What I had was a bit of discomfort when biting.  A bit of pain.  I thought it might go away so I did nothing.  Then today I was drinking cold water and felt a lot of sensitivity.  But this time another tooth, just below the one with the filling.  I called the dentist. He assured me that it made sense.  But I don't see why a lower tooth would become sensitive to cold??  The xrays didn't indicate any problems there.  Dentist claims he needs to make an adjustment to the contour of the filling.  Anyway,  does it make sense?  Why would I feel sensitive to cold in a totally unrelated tooth?

It is most likely the new filling needing to be filed down a bit as it is hitting the tooth on your lower jaw and making that tooth sensitive. I have had this happen before and when I went back and my dentist filed the filling down a bit my bite went back to normal and my tooth in my lower jaw wasn't getting tapped wrong amymore and the sensitivity went away. :)

thanks meafraid!  it would make more sense to me if the filling was actually hitting the other tooth.  but the filling is placed closer to the gum.  that little space between the gum and the tooth.
