      Default Really worried about my upcoming wisdom tooth filling

      I have a bottom wisdom tooth filling coming up on Friday. I have had two so far (One temporary, one white filling). Both times it has hurt while the dentist is drilling. I've had 3 other fillings too but none of them have hurt at all. It's just the bottom wisdom teeth fillings that hurt. Does anybody know why it hurts?

      It's more difficult to get those teeth numb. However, the dentist should not insist on working on your tooth if you are having pain.

      Some of your mouth/lips/teeth can be numb without the wisdom tooth actually being numb. It can be a tricky spot to get fully numb and not all dentists are super skilled at being able to do that.

      I've had this happen a lot. It's part of the reason why I'm dental phobic now. I wish I had advice for you other than to find a dentist that's successful at getting you numb. By that point your tooth will be filled though. Try to stay optimistic though. You might be pleasantly surprised. Good luck!
