Can A Leaking Dental Filling Cause Upset Stomach
Yes, but...: Usually for a short time only. Like a cut in the skin, it is normal to be tender for a couple of days until it heals. Deep fillings and cracked teeth can be highly sensitive (esp. To ice/cold) and may need further care. Sensitivity that lasts should be evaluated by your dentist. Root canal therapy can alleviate painful pulpal problems. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My dental filling fell out while eating and i swollowed it, pregnant 37 weeks should I be worry now?
