Tooth Pain After a Filling
Dr. Mark L. Teach discusses whether you should be experiencing tooth pain after a filling
Tooth sensitivity, or tooth pain after a filling can happen but shouldn’t last long. Watch this video by Mark Teach, one of our experienced Buffalo dentists to learn more. If you have questions, or would like to schedule a dental appointment, please contact us today.
Patients should expect some sort of sensitivity after a filling is installed, as it is a surgical procedure. There is sensitivity in the tooth because every tooth contains a nerve, and depending on the size and type of the filling used, patients should expect some sort of post-operative sensitivity. This sensitiveness is usually short-lived and does not develop into a chronic issue.
