Is it normal to experience sudden pain after a tooth filling?

Is it normal to experience sudden pain after a tooth filling?

Not at all: you should not have any pain from the tooth itself after a successful filling. Pain from hot, cold, sweet, ouch or pressure should not continue after the filling.

You should ask your dentist, you may need additional treatment or adjustments. ...Read more

Additional teeth: Impacted teeth can be a problem. Especially when they become slightly uncovered. Food enters and becomes trapped in the space around the tooth. Food then rots, your body fights it an an infection follows. Get this check out. Either the impacted tooth is orthodontically erupted or it should be taken out.

See your dentist. ...Read more
