How long should my tooth and jaw hurt after getting a filling?

After. If a restoration hurts after a day or so call your doctor again and have them look at it. It could be deep and need a root canal or the filling might just need to be reduced in height because the tooth is hitting prematurely.

Jaw pain. There should be no jaw pain after getting a filling. If pain is present, it could be that the bite needs to be adjusted.

Best to return to your dentist and have it examined. Read more...
