What to do if there's constant pain after getting temporary fillings?

Temp filling pain: Temporary Fillings are just that. They are sedative to prevent further disease. BUT if the disease has already progressed too far then further assessment is needed. Usually it is just one tooth,, that can be treated initially by meds, Go see the doc about it. Best BD
