I had an old filling on the rear of lower right 5 tooth redone recently as it had cracked. i had it replace dwith a ceramic filling. The dentist pressed down *really* hard while doing it and it hurt alot. It ached a little for a week but I assumed it would go. about a week later i noticed the gum at the very back of my mouth around wisdoom tooth hurt slightly and was swollen, but i assumed this was unrelated due to being quite far away, and now the gum up against where the filling was really hurts when it is touched/pressed. Do i have an infections preading through my jaw caused by the filling? Help!
