Composite Restorations

When an anesthetic has been used, your lips and tongue may be numb for several hours after the appointment. Avoid any chewing and hot beverages until the numbness has completely worn off. It is very easy to bite or burn your tongue or lip while you are numb.

It is normal to experience some hot, cold and pressure sensitivity after your appointment. Injection sites may also be sore. Ibuprofen (Motrin), Tylenol or aspirin (one tablet every 3-4 hours as needed), work well to alleviate the tenderness. If pressure sensitivity persists beyond a few days or if the sensitivity to hot or cold increases, contact our office.

It is normal for your teeth to be slightly sensitive to heat, cold and pressure at first. That is because we removed some tooth structure, then placed new materials on your teeth. The sensitivity should subside over time. If it doesn't, be sure to call us.

You may chew with your composite fillings as soon as the anesthetic completely wears off, since they are fully hard when you leave the office.

If your bit feels uneven, if you have persistent pain, or if you have any other questions or concerns, please call our office.
