In brief: OTC

If you have some sensitivity or discomfort following a filling, take some otc pain medication such as advil, motrin, aleve, tylenol (acetaminophen) or what you would normally take for a headache.
If the discomfort worsens or lasts more than day or so, call your own dentist for advice.
