Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXX,

Thanks for consulting Healthcare magic .
This is Dr. Priyanka tiwari answering your query .

I have read your query and understand your concern . As far as sensitivity in restored teeth is concerned this can be due to two possibilites . Firstly it can be due to deep cavity . Restoration irritates the nerve of the tooth and cause senstivity . If this is the cause of senstivity Root canal treatment is to be done . Other possibility can be due to filling is just little bit 'high' . It may cause your tooth to have trauma while chewing and in the time that tooth become sensitive .
For this I will suggest you to consult oral surgeon for clinical examination and Intraoral periapical radiograph of tooth to evaluate the cause and get proper diagnosis . Inmeantime do warm saline rinses and maintain proper oral hygiene .

Hope I have answered your query .
If your have further query I will be happy to help .

Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?

I have been experiencing thick, bubbly, sticky saliva for many months now - following about two years of using hydrogen peroxide for a mouthwash. I ve seen two dentists and two oral surgeons; surgeons tested my salivary glands and concluded my saliva was normal. They could not diagnose my problem. Told me the saliva must thicken after it is released from the glands. and in my mouth...Both believed the hydrogen peroxide was not the cause. My only relief is when I m eating or chewing gum (xylotol). Is there any antidote, assuming it was the hydrogen peroxide that brought it on?
