I had a deep filling done on a back molar next to my wisdom tooth 4 months ago and had sensitivity to heat before returning to my dentist who found nothing wrong with the filling but saw I also had decay on the wisdom tooth next to it which might be the problem. I went to a different dentist (long story) who did the wisdom tooth filling. It's been a month since that filling and I am still getting sensitivity to heat but it seems less intense than before the 2nd filling was done. I went back to my dentist telling him I don't know which filling is causing the problem who basically said as long as it's not getting worse and shows improvement however slowly just keep giving it time as root canal should not be rushed. My question is how long should I give it before going back again? Personally I think the issue is the 2nd filling as it definitely wears off quicker since having that done while before it would linger etc. Problem is they are right next to each other so it's hard to tell. I get no pain other than heat and a little bit cold. It doesn't wake me up at night or anything.
