Go back: you may need to have your dentist adjust your recent fillings. when your mouth is anesthetized (numb) you don't always bite down the same way. it's not something you can fix yourself. the best outcome would be that the adjustment fixes the problem. there are other post operative complications that can develop as well but let's think positively that it's a minor ajustment.
