After you get a filling, your tooth is more likely to provide feelings of soreness and sensitivity that may endure for hours or days after you depart the dental office. That is why it’s not surprising if you feel uncomfortable when eating or drinking sometimes. On the other hand, if you were able to follow the aftercare instructions of your dentist, then you can highly avoid discomforts while allowing your tooth to recover completely.
Not eating or drinking anything until the numbness wears off must be followed. Thus, you need to start avoiding foods and beverages that are hot/cold, crunchy, hard and sticky. These foods may affect your new tooth filling and loses its efficacy. It’s crucial to do the things your dentist has suggested so at the end of the day, your time and effort visiting the dentist to have your tooth filled will not be wasted.
