Swelling and pain in cheek after filling

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Susanag  (1 week ago)
Yesterday my son had a deep cavity in his upper second molar. It took dentist awhile to get it all drilled out and he had a few shots of pain meds. Today he doesn't have any pain at all in the tooth that was filled, but does have pain and swelling in that cheek. I would call his dentist to ask about it, but he is not in today. Is this a normal occurrence? Thanks

Working on an upper 2nd molar in a young patient is about the hardest and least fun thing we dentists do. Often the coronoid process is just under the cheek and gets in the way. The cheek is nicked and swells. Such is life.
