Can a dental filling cause your teeth to feel sensitive afterwards?

Does getting a root canal involve getting a dental filling?

Does getting a root canal involve getting a dental filling?

Yes and...: One of the main reasons rct fails is neglect if the remaining tooth structure. Oral exposure of the rc filling under leaking/failed dental work allows bacteria to recontaminate in as little as 48hrs. If the tooth needing treatment is broken down, I simply use a "50% rule". That is, if more than half the visible tooth is broken/decayed, you need a crown to support what remains--not a filling. ...Read more

Can constant dental filling replacements result in tooth removal?

Can constant dental filling replacements result in tooth removal?

Sometimes: Every time a filling is removed and replaced a little bit of tooth is removed.

If a crown is not placed the tooth can break and need to be removed. ...Read more

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

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

Yes and no: I'm not worried that you swallowed it...It'll pass. What concerns me is why it fell out. Many times when fillings fall out, it's because there is a lot of decay under it (though not always). Get to a dentist asap to have it checked out. The last thing you want is for this tooth to start hurting right before you go into labor or for a dental infection to endanger your baby! ...Read more

When it is time.: Thorough examination, both clinical and with x-rays / imaging is recommended to determine whether a filling needs to be replaced.

How can you tell if a recent dental filling is not in right?

How can you tell if a recent dental filling is not in right?

Get it checked: Even though it sometimes seems easy, people forget that getting a filling is actually a surgical procedure where the dentist "cuts out" the rotten part and re-seals the tooth. It can sometimes take a while for a tooth to feel good again. Get a quick check to make sure the bite is ok - you may be biting different when you are not numb - and that nothing is broken. If it's good, give it some time. ...Read more
