I had a filling in a top molars 4 weeks ago, it was done to replace a small filling I had done as a child which had fallen out. I was having v occasional sensitivity before it was done. The dentist said it went deeper than she thought based on the X-ray. The filling has been a bit sensitive but that has improved, but it is aching and there is a tenderness on pressure on a particular point of the tooth. The pain is only a 1 or 2 and isn't waking me up but I am getting really anxious to the point it is affecting my daily life. Does this sound like irreversible pulpitis? I tend to catastrophise and am v stressed about the thought of a RCT or an extraction and everything that means. I've made an appointment with the dentist who did it but she can't see me until next week. Thank you

No, it doesn't sound like a pulpitis, sounds more like a bite issue
