Hi Thank you so much for your earlier response :) I had a cavity filling in one of my back tooths n had sharp sensitivity since 4 months. You advised before that I might need a root canal and my cavity could be very deep. As I mentioned in my previous message, I have been using a fluoride toothpaste. My problem now is that "I do not feel pain anymore when i drink any slightly cold liquids, which I used to before! But I still feel some pain when I drink iced water." Does this mean my tooth is RECOVERING? Thank you so much, Aleeza.

  • It means two things . Either your tooth is recovering or the pulp tissue which is responsible for hot and cold sensation is getting necrosed. If you are able to chew normally from that side then it means the tooth is recovering.
