Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

As per your history, it appears that you have got a root canal treated tooth and a temporarily filled tooth.

But please mention are they located adjacent to each other? I mean both the teeth are on the same side or opposite side?

Do you feel any pain when you clench upon the root canal treated tooth or while eating is there any discomfort?

When did you get the filling done?

Please answer these questions so that I can suggest you better treatment for the concerned tooth.

Awaiting your response...
