Thanks. .. im on my way to the dentists as we speak. . Im just very concerned! I just cant stand the fact that this pregnancy has been nutty.... ahhhhhhhh! If its not family problems , its another.
If you were my patient, I would advise you that you are your dentist are probably correct that the pregnancy is making you more sensitive and is causing you to metabolize medications differently. Unless you will risk losing your teeth, or infection (which would be worse than fillings) there is probably not a rush to finish your dental work.
That might give your pocket book a chance to catch up too!
In the meantime, take good care of those teeth and gums. There is some data that suggests that poor dentition could be related to preterm delivery.
I've been a dental assistant for 11 years and am having my 2nd child. Usually pregnancy doesn't have an affect on teeth sensitivity. It may just be that the fillings were large and deep and need more time to heal. If you had tooth colored fillings done those especially tend to be hot/cold sensitive the most.
My guess is that they were the "worst" off all the fillings you had since the dentist was willing to use anesthesia on you while pregnant in your 3rd trimester. I wouldn't worry too much about it. As long as the teeth don't begin to get worse and don't wake you up in the middle of the night the teeth will heal up on their own!
