Hello, Welcome Thanks for consulting HCM,

Ihave gone through your query, as you have toothache after cavity restoration , dont worry this can be due to caries exposed to pulp .

For this you should consult dentist and go for Radiograph Xray of there is secondary caries or exposire of pulp then go for Root canal treatment, or if it can be due to periodontal problem then go for currettage .

Do warm saline gargle two - three times a day .

Hope this will help you.
