About a month ago, I went to get a filling on my bottom tooth. The dentist noticed two small holes in my top teeth. So, she filled them. Since then, I have had nothing but sharp tooth pains, and have not been able to eat. What can I do?
A sharp pain in a filled tooth can indicate a few possible problems. A high point, due to over-filling. Your teeth will contact earlier in that tooth, leading to a lot of pressure on that tooth. A leakage in the filling, especially if it is a composite (tooth colored) filling. Incomplete cavity removal. Irritated nerves and pulp of your tooth. These are the common reasons. The exact cause can be confirmed only with an X-ray.
