Hi, My name is Bidisha. I had filled one of my cavity. It was paining before. After filling the cavity the pain has become worse. My doctor suggested medicine tramadol, moxikind. I have not yet taken these medicines. I do not know will these medicine be ok to take with tryptopmer. I m taking the medicine Hifenac-p as pain killer. It seems to be non effective. I had a migraine pain last nit. Not able to differentiate between the tooth pain and migraine. All on my left side along the jaw and cheek it pains. Not sure what should I do further about this.

Thanks for asking the query,

Pain in the tooth indicates infection of the tooth ,you have already filled the tooth so there are chances the the restorative material is causing some irritation or the infection has involved the pulpal tissues .

I would suggest you to take complete course of antibiotics and analgesic.
If the pain does not subside , i suggest you to get a checkup done and take an x-ray of the tooth, depending upon which the treatment will be decided .
If the infection is deep you have to go for Root Canal Treatment of the tooth followed by prosthetic crown placement .

Pain in the jaw and cheek can be radiating pain , take rest .
use antiseptic mouthwash gargles like chlorhexidine twice daily .
Maintain a good oral hygiene .

Hope this helps out.

hello and welcome to HCM,

Tooth ache indicates bacterial decay or infection in the tooth that involves the exposed tooth nerve tissues .

since you have got a dental filling done , i suspect some remnants of the bacterial decay left in the tooth that has lead to infection and pain post filling.

such infected tooth needs to be treated by a root canal procedure so please consider getting the treatment done by consulting a dentist.

you may need a X RAY examination done for your teeth to confirm the spread of infection.

i would suggest you to start with antibiotic Augmentin 625mg along with analgesics like aceclofenac two times daily for 3 to 5 days .

This course of medicines will help in subsiding pain and and prevents infection.

i hope this helps ,

take care.

The pain in your filled tooth is due to the infected pulp coming in contact with the filling material.
The restoration has to be removed as soon as possible,get the infected pulp extirpated completely.
Pus if present has to be drained completely.
The extent of decay can be examined in x-ray.
Take medicines.
Maintain good oral hygiene.
The tooth has to be restored only after removing infected pulp completely.
Hope this helps.
