dental care


Question by  Semaj (83)

Should I have jaw pain months after a dental filling?


Answer by  sean (141)

No, a dental filling should not leave you in pain for more than a few days. If you have jaw pain, it is coming from something else than just from getting a filling.

No. You should contact your dentist immediatly. You could have dry socket or some other condition and it could hurt you very badly. I suggest you get it checked out.

If the jaw pain is in the same tooth as where the filling was performed, this may be a result of a filling that did not get the entire cavity. Thus the bacteria still burrowed down into the tooth and root canal. See a dentist, but not the one who did the original filling.

Dental fillings usually heal within just a few days. Something is wrong if a dental filling is causing pain months after it was done.
