A member asked:

A doctor has provided 1 answer

3 possibilities: 1. Traumatic occlusion (filling is microscopically "high.") Ask Dentist to recheck. 2) Fractured tooth, and fracture spread when you bite down on it. May need Root Canal or extraction. 3) Residual infection (abscess). May need root canal or extraction. If you Dentist is unable to locate source of your pain, and that can be quite difficult, a fresh pair of eyes may be in order. See an Endodontist.
