  • Will putting a metal filling in stop my chewing sensitivity?


    Two years ago my dentist filled a cavity with a white composite filling. I had problems with it initially. I had to go back to the dentist and grind away some of the composite fillings. Those were almost touching the tooth next to it. Dental floss would barely fit between them.

    I've also had chewing sensitivity with this tooth. At that time, the dentist told it's because the composite filling isn't as dense as metal. The sensitivity has increased over the last two months. I find it difficult to chew harder foods now. I am planning to consult a new and better dentist in Edmonton this time. Will putting a metal filling in stop my chewing sensitivity?

    Sorry to hear about this. None of us are dentists and therefore can't weigh-in on this topic.

      I had the same problem with my teeth. I couldn't eat food at one side of my jaw for a week and it was awful, I could eat only at the right side and that was also because of my cavity. That happened when I was on a trip to Singapore and I didn't know any dentists there. I started getting cavities when I was 16 and since then it has spread to almost all my teeth and I have to go to the dentist every year and clean it. I can recommend one dentist, he is a professional and experienced dentist. He is one of the best dentists in Singapore. Of course, you'll find him if you're there.
