I just noticed I have a wisdom coming through on the bottom left side of my mouth. My gum was a little swollen and sensitive in that area for a few days and now I felt a tooth with my tongue. The bit ...
How long do i have to wait to eat food after two cavity fillings?
I just got my bottom right and my top left teeth filled today.
And i got home around 4pm. My dentist said the novicane will ware off around 7pm.
But he didnt say anything about eating. Its 6:30 right now and i was wondering if i can eat. Or will the filling get messed up?
You can eat right away after a filling, but you may bite your lips or tongue from the Novocaine. So, if it's worn off you can start eating.
you should be good to eat if you didn't get a silver filling, those take a few hours or even a day i think to harden. i've gotten the tooth-colored cavities filled before and they harden right after the dentist shined that light on them. but you definitely should wait until the novocain wears off or else you might take a chunk out of your cheek or tongue. if you're really unsure or paranoid, just chew on the opposite side of your fillings
