The drilling of teeth during filling procedures may impose discomfort afterwards. Besides, the discomfort after filling may be related to the depth of the tooth cavity. If the tooth cavity is deep and close to the pulp, it is easier to have discomfort after filling. The discomfort usually lasts for a short period of time, however, if the discomfort persists and is getting worse, you should go to see the dentist.
