Fillings FAQ Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Filling Replacement Pain: I recently had two filling replacements on my lower right molars.

This was done because the dentist said they were old and should be replaced. I had no pain prior to this. Since the replacement my teeth are great, but I have tremendous pain in my ear and my jaw just below the ear lobe. It is horrible.

Sleeping is a challenge, the advil, tylenol or combination of both really do nothing at all. I have a great deal of pain when opening my mouth to take a bite of food or brush my teeth. It feels like an ear infection type of pain.

I went back to the dentist. She said all is fine and maybe I am bruised. As of today I feel no change in fact its worse. ...Visitor from Ontario Canada

Perhaps you sustained trauma from the injections or from keeping your mouth open for a prolonged period of time.

I suggest you discuss this with your dentist, receive medication for anti-inflammation and pain and pursue a course to follow up on this.

If needed, you could be referred to an ENT but I would guess this was just a complication from the injection(s) and prolonged opening of your mouth during treatment. Best of luck
