It’s possible, but rare, to experience an allergic reaction to a tooth filling. In fact, the American Dental Association states that fewer than 100 cases of allergic reactions to fillings have ever been reported. If you are experiencing an allergic reaction, you will likely have symptoms such as itching and skin rashes outside of pain. However, if you are experiencing tooth pain after a filling and suspect that it is because you are allergic or sensitive to the material used, contact our office immediately. We can evaluate your symptoms and determine whether or not your filling needs to be adjusted or changed. In most cases, though, the pain is caused by something else and will go away within a couple of weeks.
If you are experiencing tooth pain after a filling, be sure to contact our office today so that we can help you experience relief quickly.
At Park Place Dentistry, our staff also works with patients who are in need of dental treatments like sealants, root canals, porcelain veneers, and more. The center places a focus on preventative dentistry, like regular cleanings and x-rays, in order to help prevent dental issues in the future. Additionally, Park Place Dentistry fits patients for Invisalign, a modern approach to orthodontics that utilizes invisible braces instead of bulky, noticeable metal braces.
