  • It looks like the tooth is infected as the filling is quite old and needs the replacement. Around the ld fillings the leakage is there and some times the gums can also become infected. The itchy feeling around the tooth is basically because of the gum infection and through that the tooth also becomes infected and hence there is pain in the tooth.
