Hi! I got a root canal and filling done for a front lateral incisor. After I’ve always had a weird filling that something is stuck in my mouth like the feeling you get when a food gets stuck around your gums/tooth! I feel like the filling is touching on top of my upper palate/gums. Can the dentist trim the filling and resolve this? 2A25F822-DFCD-434C-84D3-67B06A3F45F6.jpeg

It looks like you're right there does appear to be something there. Yes it's an easy enough job to sort it out.

Thank you for the reply! I’ve been trying everything to get this resolved, i thought at first it was the antidepressants making my mouth dry etc. Then i noticed the filling was going to my pallet! I was relieved to find the cause of it.

the whole day goes by as something is stuck inside my mouth!! I hope my dentist can resolve this asap. :(

It also triggers gag reflex when i focus on it. Is this normal?

If they'll fit you in, why not. It'll literally take a minute to sort it.
