Why is my tooth so sensitive after the dentist worked on it?
Teeth are alive just like the other parts of our body with nerves and ligaments that warn us if something is up. We can also get inflammation in the gums around our teeth which can cause some sensitivity. Although we go to great lengths to prevent it, occasionally you will have a short period after getting a filling or a crown where your tooth is sensitive.
It is important to evaluate if your bite feels any different after your tooth is fixed because this could be the reason for the sensitivity. This is generally a very quick and easy slight adjustment of the filling or crown. We want to know if your tooth is sensitive after being worked on because we do our best to avoid it.
