Sensitive teeth are impacted by temperature, so avoid chewing with your mouth open to avoid cold air hitting the teeth. You will also want to avoid hot or cold drinks that can increase tooth sensitivity in the newly filled tooth.
It is best to avoid sticky foods for those first few days, as well as hard food, such as nuts, hard candy, granola bars, raw carrots, etc.
If you have sudden pain that lingers, or if the filling feels too high (hitting it before the tooth when you bite down) you will need to alert our office so we can make adjustments.
If you have any questions or concerns, or if it is time for your next dental checkup and cleaning, please give our team a call. To schedule a visit with Dr. Karisha Madden please call our Madden Dental team in Bellaire, Texas at (713) 667-8080 today!
