Post treatment mouth pain

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: doreen283  (9 years ago)
I had a temporary crown and two filings on the same side about 1 month ago, two weeks later the perm. crown and filiing on opposite side (they had to rebuild side of tooth). The crown was adjusted twice due to pain. The pain really seemed to be going away, when a few days ago, my whole mouth began to hurt with pain radiating into temple area (both sides), sometimes head aches. The pain is in the roof of my mouth(not center, closer to gums), bottom jaw. I can't eat foods like cereal that require use of the roof of mouth. I am at a loss as to what to do next. DO I wait for it to get better, see a different dentist or the same drntist? No root canal was done and does not appear warrented. I have never even kept Advil in the house, now I use it daily.
Thanks in advance.

Dental pain is never referred to the opposite side of the mouth. This sounds like muscle spasm pain to me, but it is impossible to diagnose without examining you and viewing x-rays.
