Hey Vanessa
Your story does not sound like a root canal treatment. One of the disadvantages of the amalgam filling is that it is made of metal that transmit hit (and cold).
In any case, if the sensitivity/pain is improving with over the following days, it is sign that the tooth is calming down after the first filling, so it is on the right track.:party:
Wait couple more days, it would probably decrease. :)
