Tooth sensitivity?

I have recently gotten a deep rein composite filling for one of my upper premolars. I had no sensitivity or pain before getting the filling. Now after getting the tooth filled, I am experiencing a lot of sensitivity to high and low temperature drinks of foods. Why am I feeling sensitivity now, even though it has been filled with resin composite? Is it because the filling material isn't as dense as bone is?

    This is a common reaction to a deep filling. The tooth can become sensitive for some time. Use Sensodyne toothpaste and see how it goes. Give it at least a week.
