In brief: Check Bite

Return to your dentist and have him check your bite.
Often when you are numb it is difficult to correct the bite.

In brief: dental procedure

It is common to have teeth and ear pain after prolonged dental procedures.
Keeping your jaw wide open for 5 fillings will put stress on your jaw joint which refers the pain to your ear. Dental pain from new fillings are from stimilation of the dentin in your teeth and should resolve in a few days. See your dentist if pain persists!
