Q.

Irretating teeth

Hi Dental expert

I need your help. Do not know what to do anymore.

Went for my yearly checkup at the dentist. I was notified that I have 6 holes in my teeth and one of my teeth needed root canal.

Ok so I had the root canal and the 6 holes filled. Now I sit with a problem. 2 Of the 6 holes was on my 2 upper front tooth.

Noe everytime I bite it feels like I am biting into a wall and it hurts and is very irretating.

Went back to my dentist 5 times already. He checked my bite and I was told everything is perfect with my bite, but I still feel I am biting into a wall and it is very hurtfull and irretating.

What do you suggest I do further, as I cannot live with this. I feels like I can pull out the tooth.

If it feels like you are biting on a foreing object- the filling most likely needs to be trimmed. Tell your dentist to reduce the filling a little more even though he thinks it's ok
