My fillings are sensitive. What does that mean?
Occasionally, patients feel sensitivity after a filling is done when drinking cold water or chewing. There are a couple reasons for this. For one, some patients have inflamed soft tissue that will act up right after the filling is done. Second, sometimes the filling materials are deep and close to the nerve, It can cause some discomfort for a couple of days after the filling.
