Medicated filling success
I recently had a healthy silver filling (that ended up being pretty deep) replaced with a composite filling. After 6 weeks of sensivity to hot, cold, and pressure, my dentist drilled out the composite filling, and replaced it with a medicated filling. If all goes well, my dentist will then take out the med.fill in 6 weeks, replacing it with a permanent filling.  He said that in his experience, medicated fillings only last a year or two (1 year for a composite, closer to 2 years for an amalgym) before a root canal is needed. I would obviously like to avoid a root canal as long as possible.  Do you agree that 1 or 2 years is the most  I should expect to gain before the "inevitable" RT?!?
