Discomforts after Dental Fillings and Suggestions

Dental filling, a common oral treatment, aims to restore damaged teeth to their normal function. However, like any other treatment process, some discomforts may occur after the procedure. Below, we will interpret in detail several possible discomforts after dental filling and provide corresponding suggestions.

1 Biting pain: Sometimes after a dental filling, you may feel pain when biting or when the teeth come into contact with each other. This may be due to the filling material affecting the normal occlusion relationship of the teeth.
If you still feel pain after the anesthesia wears off, the dentist recommends that you promptly return for a follow-up appointment. The dentist will adjust or redo the filling based on the situation. If the pain persists after the revisit, root canal treatment may be necessary.
2 Sensitive to cold and hot: When the teeth come into contact with cold or hot food, severe pain may be felt. The pain disappears after removing the stimulus. However, if the pain persists, it may indicate irreversible damage to the nerve of the tooth. In such cases, we recommend that you promptly contact your dentist for professional treatment.
3 Persistent throbbing pain may indicate that the decay has penetrated deeply into the nerve of the tooth. In such cases, root canal treatment is usually required to eliminate the pain.
4 Referred pain: Sometimes, the adjacent tooth to the filled tooth may experience sensitivity or pain. This is usually because the filled tooth transmits pain signals to other teeth. This pain usually resolves itself over time. If it persists, it is recommended that you visit the dentist promptly.

Apart from the above pain-related discomforts, the following situations may also occur after dental filling:

1 Some people may be allergic to silver amalgam, even though dentists don't use it much for fillings anymore." If you notice a skin rash or itching, it's important to see a doctor right away and change the filling material."
2 If decayed tissue is not entirely removed, secondary caries can occur. It can also happen if there is leakage at the edge of the filling material. In such cases, we recommend that you promptly revisit the dentist for retreatment.
3 Gum inflammation can occur if the filling does not fix the tooth's shape or causes food to get stuck. This can happen when the filling does not properly fit the tooth or creates spaces where food particles can become trapped. When food lodges in these spaces, it can cause irritation and swelling of the gums.

Gum inflammation is a common issue that can result from poorly fitting fillings. Sometimes, the material's edge needs fixing, the tooth's shape needs restoring, and cleaning between the teeth is important. Dental floss can be used when necessary.

In conclusion, dental filling is an important means to restore tooth health, but some discomforts may occur after the procedure. Understanding these possible situations will help us better cope with and address them.

When encountering the above issues, please do not panic. Promptly contact your dentist for professional advice and treatment.
