Q: I got some of my front teeth filled about 6 months ago. Since then they have been sensitive and brittle. My doctor says it is natural but I am worried. What should I do?
A:The sensitivity in the filled teeth could be because of deep cavities following decay or other causes. Sometimes when this sensitivity persists it may require root canal treatment of the affected teeth. However, the exact situation and treatment can only be advised after seeing and X-raying of the affected teeth. Thinning of the teeth could be inherent and not because of ageing. Root canal therapy followed by crowns of the front affected teeth shall take care of sensitivity, looks and strength of these teeth.
