Depending on the specific dental procedure you have undergone, there is often likely to be some pain, soreness or sensitivity in the affected area for a few days afterwards as your body continues to heal. However, sometimes you may notice different types of pain appear, perhaps in an area that you wouldn’t expect. Or, maybe the pain you felt immediately following the treatment has continued to get worse, rather than better, in the days following. This can sometimes be a sign that there is an underlying infection or a more serious issue or condition.
We always recommend that if you experience pain that doesn’t go away after a few days, gets worse or is combined with other symptoms, you should always return to your dentist to seek advice and possible further treatment.
