Is it normal for my tooth to still be hurting 2 weeks after a big filling? I can't even chew food on that side or drinking cold fluids

Is it normal for my tooth to still be hurting 2 weeks after a big filling? I can't even chew food on that side or drinking cold fluids

No: See the Dentist. 2 common causes for this. Most common is that the bite is not correct and you keep hitting on this -- get it adjusted now that you are not numb. Next would be that the tooth (nerve) is not able to recover from the accumulated trauma to this tooth (perhaps a very deep cavity) and cannot heal. You would need to have a root canal done, then a build-up and likely a crown. See Dentist. ...Read more
