Teeth and the Chills: I'd need some more information. If it was right after the procedure it can be an anxiety release. It will pass quickly. Sit down breathe deeply and slowly. Have someone else drive you home if necessary. If the timing is different than this, then please .Send more information.

Sounds: Unrelated. Chills, no fever or infection-could be a virus so see your md. Opposite hurts? Opposite tooth or side? Is it the joint on the opposite side? I would see the dentist again and have these checked.
