SEE YOUR DENTIST: If you are experiencing pain then you should go back ot oyur dentist. The decay could have been close to nerve and despite the dentists most conservative treatment you may need a root canal. If that is not the case and the nerve is as a result of the anesthesia which can happen but is rare then time will remedy this. But in any event you need to return to your dentist.

Inflammation : If this was due to a deep filling, this could mean the nerve was affected by the deep cavity. See your dentist asap to have the tooth checked.
