Hi everyone, About 1 month ago, I had a deep filling. I didn't have any pain afterward. About 2 weeks later, I started having some pain and soreness. I waited about 1 week and then went to the dentist because the pain was getting worse. It turned out the filling was too high. 3 days later, the pain was even worse (I could no longer bite without severe pain). I returned to the dentist and found the filling was still too high. The dentist also took an x-ray of the tooth, did a cold test (with spray), tested with air, checked something at the gums, etc. On the x-ray, he noticed the root was starting to enlarge slightly. However, I assumed this can be due to the pain the high filling caused to the ligament of the tooth, since the tooth reacted normally to all tests. After they corrected the high filling, I stopped having pain. However, it is now 4 days later and my face is still slightly swollen. It isn't noticeable to other people, but I can feel it when I try to smile and it is tender to touch. I don't have any pain, only some soreness. My gums look normal. The swelling is above the gums - say between the lips and bottom of the nose. Should I be concerned? Or, should this correct itself soon now that the high filling is fixed? The swelling has not gotten any worse since my appointment on Monday, but I also can't tell if it's improving yet or not. Thanks for reading all of that! I hope someone might have some advice on this. Thanks in advance!
