Hi - In sept 09 i had some minor dental work done.....3 cavities filled (no root involvement) and had resin put in to address receding gums. All this was on the Right side of my face. Now it been more than 6 weeks.....and for the most part my teeth feel fine......and I can chew soft foods with no pain....hard food - i have to be careful with my chewing on the RHS - wrong angles can hurt. But whats more worrying than that is the pain that in my jaw....starts right near my ear and lower jaw upto the middle of my lower lip. I take motrin (200mg) morning and evening and that takes care of the pain. But I dont understand why this is happening. Is it just a healing process ? I went back to the dentist and she xrayed me and said everything looks fine and that most likely I have reacted to the resin that she put in ....and that she can redo it with another material (HELL NO!!). Anyways I am wondering if someone can shed some light on it. Why am i having this jaw pain ?
