Doctor insights on: Eating after a filling
Sometimes: Placing a composite filling can sometimes lead to temporary discomfort post operatively depending on why the filling was placed. Composites placed to repair deep decay or replace large deep fillings can often traumatize the nerve within.

Reversible pulpitis: Sometimes the nerve inside our teeth gets irritated and wants to swell. Since it is completely surrounded by hard tissue (the tooth) this soft tissue (the nerve) can not swell. This will cause pain on it's own. Does the pain go away with Motrin (ibuprofen)? This swelling is very slow to respond. The constant irritation from clenching or grinding my be the original cause of pain anyway. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Filling too tall: It is not unusual for new filling to be sensitive for few days. If sensitivity continues past 3-4 days, new filling may be too tall. This makes the tooth very sensitive and requires adjustment to lower height of the filling. If pain is severe and new filling is deep/close to the nerve, the nerve may be damaged/dying possibly requiring a root canal.

My dental filling fell out while eating and I swollowed it, pregnant 37 weeks should I be worry now?
Yes and no: I'm not worried that you swallowed it...It'll pass. What concerns me is why it fell out. Many times when fillings fall out, it's because there is a lot of decay under it (though not always). Get to a dentist asap to have it checked out.
