Thank you doctor,
I took two Motrin. My father-in-law is a dentist. He is the one who performed the procedure. I originally had terrible shooting pain with hot and cold substances. Now it just feels like an uncomfortable pain, not shooting nerve pain but like salt on a wound. I tried eating bananas, and it just feels very uncomfortable, like I am pushing in the filling. He did not put a crown because he said it was not needed on how he performed it. I have been like this now for almost 2.5 weeks, and my right lymph nodes developed pain about two days ago right underneath the same side of the tooth. I had one of the residents here to check me out, and they said it is like mild inflammation but nothing major. The gums around that back tooth are red, and it looks like I used a red liner around it, and the rest of the gum is white. It feels uncomfortable, and then I feel like the back tooth's pain radiates up to the front teeth. Does the filling look normal on the x-ray?
