  • Tooth ache before filling would be because of infection in the tooth and tooth ache after filling can be because of some high point on filling or can be because of infection still left in the tooth. If the infection is deep, then root canal treatment can be done for the tooth. Your dentist after clinical and radiographic examination will find out that what the exact cause of pain in the tooth is.  If it is because of some high point in the tooth, then your dentist can remove it and if it is due to infection left in the tooth, then refilling or root canal treatment is done.  In pregnancy it becomes important that you maintain a good oral hygiene. You are in the second trimester of pregnancy which is considered to be safe period for dental procedures. You can consult your dentist and get the treatment done before the pain becomes unbearable for you to take. Taking only the pain medicaments will not serve the purpose.
