“I have had some problems with some previous dental work…
“I had a filling done a few months ago and everything was fine and then I started to get some sensitivity to hot/cold and now it’s a bit tender to bite on. I went back to the dentist and they tried me on a special toothpaste and that didn’t help.
Why is this happening when the filling is only 4 months old? Should I go back to the same dentist for this or should I get a second opinion?

The possibility is of having a deep cavity which you got filled. get one x ray done for the same tooth. you can always ask the same doctor for it
