Wychwood Dental's takeaway:

  • I always make a point to tell patients all possible issues they may experience after a filling, including sensitivity. Most issues are short in nature but it is always a good idea to let your dentist know if you are experiencing post-op sensitivity. This way you can have all your questions and concerns addressed.
  • If the bite feels off after a few days, I always tell the patient to call and come in ASAP. Usually, a slight adjustment is all that is needed and if left untreated can cause more serious problems.
