I got a filling today for cavity. Three hours later, my tooth started hurting so bad that it made me sick. The entire side of the mouth is pulsating due to sharp pain. Is it normal?

High or deep filling: If the filling was deep and near the nerve this could cause an acute inflammation and pain.
Otherwise a filling that is "high" or hits the opposing tooth too heavily can cause a sharp inflammation/pain in the ligament that holds the tooth in the jawbone. I hope you can get in to have the dentist assess the problem asap. ...Read more
