  • Pain may occur 4-5 days after dental filing as filling may take some time to settle. If the pain persists for longer time, then it can be because of some high point on the tooth or can be because of infection still left in the tooth. If there is some high point present on the tooth, then it can be corrected by the dentist. If there is infection still left in the tooth, then root canal treatment may be required for the tooth.  You can refer to your dentist for this. He may take a x-ray to see whether infection is there in the tooth or not. If infection is left in the tooth, then he may perform root canal procedure. By that time, avoid chewing from that side of the tooth and maintain good oral hygiene to avoid any gum infections.  For more info on problem after silver filing, you can refer to following article.. http://www.identalhub.com/dental-problem-after-amalgam-dental-filling-805.aspx
