I had three fillings done three days ago with the white fillings. One of them feels like it aches off and on throughout the day and if I eat something hard it hurts. It is not like a striking nerve pain but just a sore pain. The pain hasn't gotten worse or better. Could you please tell me if it is normal to feel my tooth aching still and how long should I wait to call the dentist regarding this? Thank you for your help.
Sorry for not answering sooner, I was out of town.
I would recommend going back to your dentist sooner actually and getting your bite adjusted. Sometimes after we finish your fillings, the filling is higher than your original tooth and can cause more pressure when you are chewing down and causes trauma on the tooth, resulting in pain. See if that's the cause of it. Hope that helps.
Thank you for your help. I still have the same pain and I feel alot better hearing you say that because someone else said the tooth could take a while to feel better also. So I will just wait it out for a few weeks and if it doesn't get any better then I will call the dentist. Thanks again. I'm glad someone could help.
