More info needed...: Your symptoms, although not unheard of after a long dental procedure, are really not the fault of your dentist. I do not know how long you have been in pain, but these things often resolve on their own after a week or two. Discuss your concerns with your dentist and determine if a referral to a specialist is necessary. All the best...
