  • Pain 2-3 days after dental filling is normal. It takes some time for dental filling to settle. If pain persists for longer time, then it can be because of some high point on dental filling or can be there if dental filling is close to the nerve. If filling is high, then the tissues become tender and cause pain. If there is high point on tooth, then selective grinding can be done to correct the occlusion. If dental filling is close to dental nerve, then root canal treatment may be required for the tooth. If the pain is unbearable, then your daughter can visit your dentist for evaluation of tooth. By the time, she visits dentist, she can continue with pain meds for some relief and can avoid eating from the side of filled teeth. For more info on pain after dental filling, refer to…
