I’ve Had A Composite Filling And Now I Suffer From Sensitivity. Is This Normal?

Q.
Hello Dr Moore. I have had a composite filling along and below the gum line of my bottom back molar as the gum has receded.  Since having had this done I’ve suffered with high sensitivity so now can’t even use mouthwash as it is hyper-sensitive. Is this normal with this type of treatment? I’m worried about brushing it as it’s already fallen out four times and every time I go back, the dentist is having to grind a bit more of my tooth in order for the filling to stick. I’d really like some help with this. Thank you for your time.

Hello and thank you for getting in touch. It’s difficult to say without seeing you in person. It might be time to consider another option? Has your dentist mentioned what else he can do? Why not seek a second opinion on this? Try to find someone in your area who’s experienced in this type of work. If you’d like information on the various treatments available you can find it through this website. I hope that helps. Kind Regards, Dr Andrew Moore.
