Sensitive teeth after filling

In some cases, patients still experience toothache after filling their teeth. Drilling out the caries and filling the tooth should ensure that the pain stops. People experience toothache for many reasons, but the transmission of pain always works the same way. A nerve is irritated and passes the pain signal on to the brain. Therefore, it may well be that the teeth react sensitively despite caries being removed. The reason is that the nerve takes time to calm down. Here you can read about the other reasons behind sensitive teeth after a tooth filling, how other readers deal with them and how the problem can be solved.

Tooth filling in white?!

Hello abrar, the white filling is of course better because it does not deviate so visibly. If you have to have front teeth filled, they will be filled in white without additional payment. Hanco writes that he also got a molar in white, free of charge. I have had the experience that my dentist does not fill the molars or the ones before that in white for free. I do not know now whether it is the dentist who wants to save his budget or the respective health insurance company that does not pay it. If you are lucky enough to have a dental clinic in your area that trains students, you can go there, because all teeth are sealed in white, i.e. the students practice on the patient, and that is without additional payment.

White tooth filling without UV light: which one is it?

Hello, I got a white tooth filling (cash benefit) from two dentists at my current dentist. This filling was filled into the tooth with a special large syringe without UV light, I was then allowed to bite on a finger-thick balloon with cotton wool inside. After about half a minute this came out and ready..

Who knows this type of tooth filling, which one is it? VG..

cement. that’s what it is called. you use it to build teeth or to fill it up if you want a crown later. there is no need to remove any plastic or amalgam fillings. this is the same or similar cement with which you also glue crowns.
