Hi I had a filling done 6months ago not very deep. A few weeks ago I started sensitivity to cold and hot quick not long lasting. Pain is where filling tooth meet. I am going on vaca in two days. My dentist wants to do a medicinal temp filling. Is this OK or should I wait till after my trip?

  • If the sensitivity is there at the interface of filling then it is better to get medicinal temporary filling done because the pain can increase. This sensitivity is due to leakage or gap between the filling and the tooth. When you come back from vacation then you  have to either get the whole filling repeated or get the root canal treatment done which depends on xray and clinical examination. for more info on pain after dental filling you can check this article.... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-reasons-of-tooth-ache-or-pain-after-dental-filling-812.aspx
