I had to have five fillings recently (including one deep one) and I'm not sure if I need to go back to the dentist as still seem to be getting tooth pain on and off. Not agonising pain but I'd rather be pain-free obviously. I've read that fillings can take 'a while' to settle down. But how long is a while in this scenario? I called dentist but receptionist just said to monitor it but not sure if I should be insisting I need to go back in case something has gone wrong.
