I had two cavities at the back of each of my front teeth, as well as a large chip on one (my tooth was half the size it should be near enough)
My dentist filled both cavities and fixed my broken tooth using composite a couple of days ago, and ever since whenever I move my mouth in a certain way (like if I bring my lips together to whistle, or rub my lips together as you would when putting lipstick on), I've felt this odd pressure, almost like my teeth aren't completely secure in their sockets and are being moved ever so slightly. They don't move as far as I can tell, but they feel somehow 'wrong' in my mouth. It's making it difficult for me to eat as 1) it feels like there's something in my mouth that shouldn't be there when I chew, and 2) I'm worried that if I bite on something the wrong way with my front teeth, that they'll snap off.
I've also noticed sensitivity to hot and cold and occasionally, when I bite on something in just the right way, I get a small sharp pain in the tooth that was chipped.
The sensation is honestly making me nervous because they really do feel like if I were to push on them with my tongue with any moderate degree of strength, that they'd pop right out.
Is this normal? What could be causing this sensation?
