Throbbing pain and swelling

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: starrynight  (8 years ago)
Two weeks ago, I got a filling on tooth #8. Since then, I got a lot of throbbing on the tooth. Today, I woke up with a swollen face and also have a fever. Does this mean I have an infection? Please help.

Yep, probably have an abscess. Most likely it was a deep cavity and the nerve was on the way to death before the filling was done. Expect to have a root canal. See your dentist quickly.
