    Got a filling a couple weeks ago, the molar is EXTREMELY sensitive and getting on my nerves. Eating ice cream now for the first time since I had it done and quite uncomfortable. Forgot the question, anyone have a good solution? Like those toothpastes or something?

    go back to the dentist it sounds like there is still a nerve that is exposed, those sensitive teeth toothpastes didn't work for me, it almost made it worse. hope it gets to feeling better, try some baby teething gel to numb it for now or rub some jack on it. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Try Crest for sensitive teeth. It takes 2-3 weeks to really start working. Stop using any tartar control or whitening toothpaste. Be sure to floss -especially at night, use the Crest toothpaste and don't rinse after-(leave a little paste on tooth in question). Most fillings are cold senstive for 3-4 weeks.

    I agree with the Crest Sensitive Toothpaste. My dentist told me to say away from anything with tartar control and whitening toothpastes. He also said that the expensive Sensitive toothpaste all have the same ingredients as the Crest.

    I had a couple crowns put on my molers. Hurt like hell for months. Went back to the dentist several times and he said if it didnt settle down in a couple months he was going to do a root canal. Eventually (after 5 months) the sensitivity went away.

    BTW, I was also using a Tarted control toothpaste and they recommended not using that type because studies are showing it appears to enhance sensitivity. They recommended switching over to Crest or some other type of Sensitive toothpaste instead. Seems to work.
