Q.

Very sensitive tooth

Hi there 

3 weeks ago, i had my hole in my tooth a piece of silver filling broke off. I went the to the dentist and she replaced my silver filling with a white filling.

For 2 weeks thereafter, I could not chew on that side of my mouth whatsoever.

Then it got a bit better for a few days, however for the past couple of days, I can not eat on that tooth again. It is EXTREMELY sensitive, and very painful. I can not eat anything without getting a headache and toothache at the same time. I''m struggling, what should I do, and what could be wrong? The tooth also directly underneath the one that was filled has also become very painful.

it is most likely that the new filling needs to be trimmed slightly.
