My Bridge is Affecting A Nearby Filled Tooth, What Can Be Done?

Q.
hi there, i have recently been fitted with a maryland bridge just (3rd from the last tooth at the upper back). The tooth was missing for over 20 years so i have suffered from quite severe gum recession in this area. the tooth next to the bridge has a large filling and since the bridge, I have had nothing but pain, sensitivity and more pain. It is not even like I can pin an exact cause or anything either because the pain comes with pretty much everything in my day to day life. So like it will come with pressure, with any food or drink that is hot, cold, warm, anything that contains even a little bit of sugar, it’s everything. I’ve been back 6 times and the filling changed but this has made no difference. Should I ask for the bridge to be removed?

Hello, thank you for your question. It is difficult to answer your question without seeing you but I would suggest that you pursue your current dentist with this problem as until it is resolved it is ongoing treatment.

I hope this helps.
