  • Pain in tooth with a filling can be because of fracture of dental filling or can be because of residual caries or secondary caries below dental filling. If you got dental filling recently, then pain for 3-4 days after filling is normal. It takes 3-4 days for pain due to dental filling to settle. Pain can also be because of some high point on dental filling which causes acute pain on applying pressure. Gum infection in relation to dental filling can also lead to pain. If there is residual caries or secondary caries present in tooth below dental filling, then refilling is required. If filling is close to nerve, then root canal treatment may also be required. In case of high point on dental filling, selective grinding can be done to correct the occlusion. Without examination, it is difficult to comment that what is the exact cause of pain in tooth with dental filling. Refer to your dentist for definite diagnosis and treatment. By that time, avoid eating from the side of filled tooth and maintain good oral hygiene to avoid any gum infections.
