’08 Dec 15 Monday, Since I got my tooth filled, my jaw and gum has been sorer that when I had the tooth pulled and it’s taken a while to heal. I also noticed that I have a burr on the back of my filling as dental floss gets caught on it. But the biggest problem I have is that the odd time when I chew hard food and happen to hit a certain part of that tooth, I get a sharp shooting pain like a nail being driven into my jaw. I also have what I call an awareness of a dull toothache, and while it doesn’t “hurt” per-say, there is this awareness that it drawing attention to it. I’m going to call her and see what’s going on.
