Two months ago I had a large deep grey ten year old filling which was leaking replaced with a new composite one. There was no new decay on the tooth and no pain or sensitivity after the filling. Two days ago the molar became sensitive to heat and cold but not sweet things. The pain lasts 4-5 seconds after stimulus is removed. No toothache. A few weeks ago I changed to an electric tooth brush and noticed much improved tartar removal. I'm now using sensodyne rapid relief and tooth is less sensitive. I'm going to contact my dentist tomorrow but may have to wait a few days for appointment. Has anyone with these symptoms kept their tooth or is a root canal necessary? I can go to dentist but suffer anxiety and am very afraid of sedation :/.
