From my perspective,: Likely unrelated to the lyme borelliosis.

Yes : I'm assuming you have gotten rid of the lyme...I suspect your pain is more related to your recent dental treatment..What was done? You should talk to your dentist.

See your dentist.: Pain after a few days of dental care is not normal... I would suggest going back to your dentist.

Not related: I doubt there is any correlation between your lyme disease and dental pain. It is normal to have some sensitivity and some mild irritation to the gingiva after dental work. It's hard to say what is normal for you since i don't know what dental work you had done. If symptoms don't subside, go back to the dentist to see what might be wrong.
