Borderline case a filling would suffice ... A case where cavity is on the nerves ... A root canal treatment is advised you can check with a filling first if it doesn't help kindly get root canal treatment done

I had a GIC filling done in my tooth. Cavity was not deep, it was a small cavity. After 15 days tooth stated paining. Went to dentist and there was high point in filling. Dentist removed the high point and verified by coloured paper. But still there is 30% pain in my tooth. Will the pain reside by its own or should I consult another dentist?

Silver amalgam fillings are no more recommended in the present scenarios. The best way to get the cavity filled is by composite resins which are more conservative to fill and are tooth coloured. The cost of treatment is variable from dentist to dentist. On an average a qualified and experienced dentist will charge round about 1000 to 1800 rupees for tooth.

What do you feel exactly. If you only feel weakness, it may be because of weakness in muscles and ligaments. Fillings in the teeth dnt make you feel weakness in bones. Weakness of facial muscles of mastication can make you feel so. So do not worry. Share more details and any other medical history you have. Weakness may also be because of decreases HB levels or nutritional deficiencies. So get you normal blood profile done. Msg for more detailed Discussion. Eat healthy.

I have undergone filling. But it feels the place where filling is done have a little pain sometimes. This makes a fear of failure of filling. But the filling is done only past 4 days ago. Why the pain comes, there is a possibility of infection? How to maintain the filled teeth.

The pain may be due to the reason that the cavity is near to close the pulp or nerve of the tooth, see the dentist again as that tooth may need a root canal filling.

As far as tooth decay is concerned, filling are the permanent treatment to this condition. Taking pain killers or brushing twicw or thrice will not help. They will give you only temporary relief. Once tooth decay has occured its better to get filling done otherwise delaying it may worsen condition over a period of time which may lead to root canal treatment or surgery.
