I had a filling on a back molar about a month ago. It was a multi-surface filling, and for the first week or so it mostly felt weird, with a little sensitivity to cold. That sensitivity became more intense and in the past two weeks, I've started feeling pain when biting down. Now I can even feel it when I use a fingernail to press slightly on the filled area.
Could part of the filling have fallen out already? I don't *see* anything missing. Or could the tooth have cracked? The dentist did drill a bit, and I really wasn't comfortable with some of the things he said during the process...the assistant pointed out that he'd missed an area.
I have a return appointment on Monday, but was hoping some dental experts here might have some thoughts.
