I had a and a large filling on my upper right second molar a few months ago. After a month, I had some swelling above the gum area. My canine tooth and jaw had begun hurting as well. I also noticed some numbness in the right side of my tongue. When I went to the dentist, he took some X-rays, checked my teeth for sensitivity and said everything looks fine. He asked me to wait for a few more weeks and see how it goes.
I have started brushing more and flossing more to get rid of the swelling in my gums. After four weeks, I felt better though the numbness in my tongue was still there. I thought everything was already fine until about a week ago, I noticed that the tooth and pain came back. I now have cold sensitivity on the filled tooth and some swelling around its area. Does anyone know why would this be happening? Please help! I have been sleepless lately because of the pain. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!
