Sharp shooting pain means nerve endings are open; plus premolar is a small size tooth so when it generally decays second time under filling ; 90% cases to for root canal treatment.  Go for it.

Hi, the pain which you experience..how long does it lasts?? Is there any sensation to hot/ Cold liquids? Is there any pain while you lie down??. we need detailed history followed by a X-ray to confirm the diagnosis, then only it can be decided whether you need re- filling or RCT. Regards..

Hello, first get your X ray done,if decay is close to nerve then root canal is the only treatment and if not close then filling can be done.but because you are having pain that shows premolar is infected.so root canal is the treatment for this.

Hello ...you need to get a xray of premolar to evaluate the extent of caries in relation to the pulp inside. ..If cavity is deep and involving pulp you need root canal treatment for the same. ..as you are having sensitivity to extreme temperature perticularly to cold its a absolute indication of root canal. ..In your case just restoration of teeth with filling material ll jot be helpful .still I ll advice to get an iopa (X ray)done...😊 regards Dt Vishal Mugal

Hello we need to take your x-ray to confirm the depth of decay if not involving the pulp then only filling replacement has to be done ..if involving the pulp then root canal ..but do not delay the filling as things will go worse due to neglect..tc

Just relax dear....filling might be dislodged of many reason may be buy human errors during restoration or might because of feeding habits of patient. i.e.because of sticky food.
Visit your dentist as soon as possible because treatment would certainly depend upon clinical and radiographic findings.
Do remember friends when ever a filling is dislogged or removed plz visit your dentist as soon as possible

Although a proper channel examination and an x ray will be required for the right diagnosis in your case, but most likely with the description that you have mentioned, it can be suggested that you will require root canal treatment for relief from the symptoms.... Regards....
