Does the tooth wake you up night?
What should we tell patients:
- Cavities do not hurt until they have reached the nerve. Placing fillings causes inflammation inside the tooth, leading to sensitivity to hot and cold. It is normal to have sensitivity.
Saying that if the tooth wakes you up at night is beyond normal, and most of the time means that the tooth may need an additional treatment to treat an inflamed nerve, We should see a patient soon.
