My jaw and face hurts after filling. How long will this last?

Myostatic contractur. Myostatic contracture is a reversible shortening of a muscle belly that is painless unless the muscle is forcibly stretched. It occurs when a muscle is kept from reaching its full resting length for a prolonged period of time aka dental treatment. This condition is usually reversible with moist heat and passive stretch exercises.

Not Usually, But.... Have you informed your treating doctor and been re-examined? Is it getting better, worse, or staying the same? 27 days is a long time to heal, but there may be extenuating circumstances, other factors. You need to be checked. If you are not getting a satisfactory response, maybe a second opinion is in order. Read more...

Too long. It seems like you have been in pain for too long. Having discomfort after wisdom teeth extraction is normal for 2 weeks of healing. If you had many fillings done at the same visit maybe different things are happening. First with the 5 fillings maybe they need adjustments because if the bite is off it will cause a lot of pain. Secondly perhaps there is a dry socket . Please see your dentist. Read more...
