Tooth Pain When Chewing After Composite Filling
Need to see Dentist: Please see the dentist who filled the tooth asap... One possibility is that the filling is high. A slight adjustment may resolve it completely. Or... The filling may be very close to the nerve. This can lead to a root canal or loss of your tooth. Aleve, (naproxen) advil, Motrin or for more holistic patients, arnica can be helpful to reduce swelling and pain temporarily.See 5 more doctor answers
Wait and see: Teeth are sensitive after fillings due to the size, depth and location on the tooth. Also the size of the pulp chamber. Sensitivity to cold is most common. This usually abates in 2 wks. If the tooth aches without any stimuli, then there is a greater chance the pulp may be irreversibly inflamed and a root canal may be necessary. If the ache continues to worsen over time, a root canal is necessary.See 3 more doctor answers

Under pressure: When a tooth is worked on to correct an issue there will be resultant inflammation. In most cases the inflammation resolves on its own. Yet if something is not quite right like the bite is off a bit it may cause increased trauma to the tooth. Many times while numb it is difficult to bite properly so when numb is gone you will be more aware and a simple adjustment to bite may be all it needs.See 1 more doctor answer

Pain: After a new restoration, it is possible to have sensitivity. It should get better with time. If it is unbearable pain, keeps you up at night, constant throbbing pain, or you need to take pain meds, you should see your dentist to get it examined.See 3 more doctor answers
6-8 weeks: It is normal to experience sensitivity after you have recently had a filling up to 6-8 weeks. Do not worry, as long as the tooth is gradually improving. Sometimes, the decay could have been too close to the nerve of the tooth and in some cases the tooth will need a root canal therapy to stop the toothache.See 1 more doctor answer

Radiating pain: The constant strain on the neck muscles and stress during the dental treatment results in the headache felt at the back of the neck radiating up the skull and shoulder. Application of moist heat and OTC NSAID can help to ease discomfort. If concerned, see your dentist for post-op evaluation.See 4 more doctor answers
Get help ASAP: Pain is your bodies way of telling you there's something that needs your attention now. Sorry you're not feeling well, but please try to get to your dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, 1-2 200mg Ibuprofen (advil, motrin) or 1 Ibuprofen + 1 acetominophen (tylenol) every 4 hours w lots of liquid or food. Won't fix the problem, but should take the edge off.See 4 more doctor answers

When I got my bottom braces on, they put some white thing near the front of my back tooth and it's there in 2 places, could this be a composite filling?
Bite turbo: It's a bit of plastic to protect your braces, to prevent you from biting them off until your teeth begin to level and align. Your Orthodontic Specialist should be able to explain this to you. Never be put off about asking a question. We Orthodontists very much enjoy what we do, like talking about it, and are always happy to share knowledge.See 2 more doctor answers
