Sensitivity following treatment
- This can occur after any treatment. Everyone’s teeth respond to treatment differently and it is difficult to say if you will get this or not.
There are certain cases where it is more likely to occur:
- Tooth whitening.
- After large fillings.
- If a new filling is too high.
- After more invasive procedures such as crowns.
- In people who generally suffer from sensitive teeth.
This will usually resolve on it’s own after a few days. Increased sensitivity or pain could be a sign of other problems or the need for root canal treatment and you should contact us immediately.
Please call if you are experiencing any problems after treatment, it is usually something very simple such as a slight adjustment that is required.
