I had a filling put in almost two weeks ago but I am still unable to bite and chew. I let the pain go for a week before I called the dentist back. He then had me come in to adjust the bite and told me to wait a couple of days for the muscles to heal and I should be fine. It's been a couple of days and I am still unable to bite and I am still having speech problems. The pain is in the lower jaw and the speech problems really concern me. When he gave the shot to numb my gums it hurt more than I remember from previous procedures.
