Some common problems may come due to the introduction of the foreign composite material into your dental formula. Some of them go away with time, but some will need your dentist to have a look, as discussed below.
Crack and Chips Falling Off
You might notice sharp edges and crack in the composite or chips and pieces of the material beginning to fall off. When this happens, we recommend that you contact your dentist for an appointment.
Tooth sensitivity and pain after the placement is typical. This can increase due to sensitivity to pressure, air, temperature, and sweet foods. After going through the filling procedure, try to avoid such things, and use painkillers within the first few weeks.
You may feel discomfort around the filled teeth, mostly when you bite. Such problems can be due to the impact of the composite material on the other teeth or gum. Sometimes the pain will calm after a short time.
If it persists, then you can return to your dentist to reshape and re-trim the material.
