Q.

teeth issue

I went to the dentist with a painful tooth to extract it, but he suggested to try root canal 1st which was fine. After the root canal he said he spotted 2 teeth that needs filling. I went back for the fillings but ever since then those two teeth are extremely sensitive to cold/hot things and one is painful when I chew on it''s side. I went back a week later for him to check them out, but he gave me sensodyne toothpaste and say I must give it few weeks. it''s been 3 weeks and no changes. i need advice as to what I can do. the one where he did root canal is fine, no more pain there

The fillings/ root canal may be causing the pain.
it is not normal to experience pain 3 weeks after the treatment.return to your dentist.
