I was eating the ice after finishing my drink on a very hot day. I was just crunching away not thinking about anything particular. A few hours later I ate something sweet and it gave me a twinge of pain in a tooth. I did not think much about it at the time. I have had sensitivity before. Then it started to hurt without eating or drinking anything. I called to get an appointment at a dentist for Wollongong. I was hoping I would not need another root canal.
I went in for my appointment, and the dentist warned me about eating ice. It seems it is not a problem for some folks, but it can cause chips and cracks for some other people. I had a resin filling loosen and a chip happen too. The filling was barely being held in place. It was loose and ready to fall out. The tooth next to it was keeping it from falling out. Plus, there was a chip around the edge of the filling that was new. This is why I was feeling some pain.
The x-ray showed that the tooth did not need a root canal. I was very happy about that. I just needed a new filling and the chip fixed too. The filling would be a little bigger, but that was okay. The new resins they use matched the color of my tooth perfectly. You could not tell the tooth was filled. It was better than the one I had before. I was looking in the mirror after the dentist for Wollongong was done, and I could not detect a line or color change. The filling was that perfect of a match. I asked about having some of my other fillings that had color variances changed to look as good as this one.
