Oftentimes, when there is a cavity between teeth, it is not uncommon for both teeth to be affected. Your dentist can usually see this on the x-ray or directly in the mouth when performing the filling on one tooth. However, sensitivity after a filling is also not unusual. If the sensitivity persists or worsens over the the next week or two, call your dentist to have the tooth checked and maybe the bite adjusted. READ MORE
Flossing 1-2x daily will greatly improve your gum health. Try it for a couple weeks and you should see improvement. Adding a Waterpik can also help flush out lots of hidden food particles from between the teeth and gums. Also, having your teeth cleaned professionally more often (e.g., 3-4 times a year) will help keep your oral health in better shape. READ MORE
