I'm a 16 year old girl (I dont know if this matters or not), and 2 and a half months ago I had a regular checkup at my dentist, and my dentist found a small shadow that she thought might be a cavity at the right side of my upper row of teeth, so she started the drilling and filled it in afterwards. So just to give some background information, I've NEVER had a cavity in my life before, and this one (my first) was very small, according to my dentist. However, ever since I was little I've always been told that I have "weak enamel", which according to my dentist might lead to uncomfort when eating very cold or very hot foods, but I've never felt that way before and she told me I was lucky, in that case. Now back to after the filling, I didn't feel anything the first day, but after that I've been getting this pain when I eat or drink (temperature doesn't matter, it hurts anyways, although it is a little worse with hot or cold drinks/foods) and when I bite down (only when I bite at a weird angle, I've had braces and all so it's nothing wrong with my bite). When my dentist did the drilling I felt like she did it really quickly to get it over with because she could probably notice that I was very uncomfortable, so maybe something happened, but I dont know. I'm just very concerned and I have really bad anxiety, and I have an appointment at my dentist in three days, but I wanted to post my situation here as well, in hopes that maybe some of you have an idea of what's wrong with me... haha.
