Do you know about toothache?

Which tooth hurts - the one that had the filling?

I'd call the dentist and see what he recommends - they can prescribe antibiotics, and I do think they're better than GPs when it comes to teeth/jaw sorts of things.

Was the filling on the biting surface of the tooth? Maybe the filling is too high, and you're having biting problems as a result? That would explain it getting worse. (It could just be a nerve, though?)

I'd call the receptionist and explain the circumstances. Given that this it almost certainly his fault, he might be able to squeeze you in?
