I got my cavity filled the over the weekend and since yesterday my inside gum where I got the cavity filled feels a bit bumpy and it hurts a bit. My next cavity filling is next Friday but I just want to know ahead of time if its anything serious.

  • Sometimes after getting the filling done, this  problem is there. The  gum becomes tender. You can wait for couple of days. Till then  you can do warm saline rinses and apply some otc available gum  paint. This should be fine by your next visit. There is nothing serious. If it still hurts then you  can discuss with your dentist on next visit. for more info on pain after dental filling you can check this link in our website..... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-reasons-of-tooth-ache-or-pain-after-dental-filling-812.aspx
