Phantom pain after dental work can occur. This can last a few days but will wear.off. If pain.or discomfort persists beyond that, notify your dentist.

Usually if you have discomfort on all of your teeth the cause is gingival inflammation. You've recently had dental treatment, but did you have a full examination with radiographs and a professional cleaning? If not, now is the time to make an appointment.
