Post Filling Pain and pressure

May 30, 2021
Hi. I had 3 filings done about 8 days ago. Since then I've had a constant radiating pain coming from that side of my mouth. The filling were all in a row on the upper right side. The pain seems to move around sometimes but it's pretty constant. It usually feels like there is pressure in one particular tooth but other times feels like it's coming from the gums or the back of my mouth and then sometimes I can feel it in the bottom left.

When they did the filling the dentist had no trouble numbing the first two teeth but the last one for some reason would not properly numb and I had to bear through the pain during the entire procedure.

Any ideas on what could be causing the continued pain?

Good day

Do you have any x-rays of the tooth? It could be that one of the fillings is too high and needs an adjustment or one of them is too deep and close to the nerve. Difficult to say without more information.
