Thanks for posting your query.
First of all it has to be evaluated that whether the tooth is sensitive or pain is associated.
Sensitivity after scaling usually subsides gradually.
The abraded/eroded portion of tooth has to be restored using tooth-coloured filling material.
If The teeth is infected periapically,rct has to be done.
Take care.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
A composite filling could be contaminated with saliva. This would weaken the bond between the filling and the tooth and allow for leaks. Other times, there may be small gaps where the tooth and filling meet. These gaps are caused by shrinkage when your dentist places the filling. Sensitivity after receiving a composite filling may disappear over time. If it doesn't, the filling may need to be replaced.
Fillings also can leak as a result of wear over time. These fillings should be replaced.
Clenching or grinding also can cause your teeth and fillings to crack or develop small craze lines.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

The problem should be identified after examination. It could be sensitivity of teeth around the filling. Use a desensitising paste like Colgate Prorelief twice daily. If it is pain it could be the restoration is involving the pulp and Root canal treatment would solve the problem.

Thanks for asking the query,

Toothache after composite restoration most commonly, arises due to improper bonding between composite restoration to the tooth.
In such cases removal of the filling placement of ZoE dressing for a week and refillling with composite restoration by placing a calcium hydroxide base is required.

So i would advise you to visit the Dentist get the clinical examination done, and if needed take an x-ray of the tooth.

Hope this helps out.
