Five days ago, I got a replacement filling in my last bottom tooth. Since then I have been experiencing sensitivity in that tooth when I drink cold/warm liquids.
Also, the retromolar pad is very painful, especially when I touth it. The part of the pad that particularly hurts is right next to the tooth.I contacted my dentist and he said he manipulated my gum and tooth quite a bit and to wait a few days; then he can see me in a week or so. I don't think I can wait that long. My question is:
What are symptoms of an infection?Because, I think I may have one. This morning I woke up with a foul taste in my mouth. My dentist dosen't seem to think I have an infection (although he did not look at it) Thank you
