A filling repairs and restores the tooth and stops dental decay. The process of this treatment is done under local anaesthetic, thus instantly after the procedure your mouth may feel weird. Also, one or more of your teeth may cause soreness or sensitivity after your treatment, and this may last for hours or days. As a result, eating and drinking can be quite difficult and uncomfortable on your part. Fortunately, by following your dentist’s aftercare guidelines, you can significantly reduce discomfort.
Before leaving the dental office, it’s important to remember and follow the instructions of your dentist so you can make the most of your filling treatment. In the days after filling your tooth, you may find that you teeth are particularly sensitive to hot and cold drinks or foods. Sticky and hard foods are not also exempted as these stuff can dislodge your new filling. While your treated tooth needs to recover completely, you are only allowed to eat soft and warm foods for the meantime. Moreover, if the tooth remains sensitive after a week, see your dentist for another appointment to know what could be causing the problem.
