Hi, I had a large filling replaced 2 wks ago after the old one had cracked and lifted. The dentist thought I might need a root canal, but when she went in there was only a little more decay and the old lining had detoriated so it was replaced. All was well, and plans for a crown are being made for the new year. Now 2 wks later, the tooth is very sensitive, I can't bite down on that side and chewing is out of the question. I think the filling seems a little high - could that be causing the pain or could there be other problems so soon? It was fine a few days after the filling but in horrible pain now.
