Went to the Dentist this morning. He did a filling on a sore tooth and said it was a deep cavity. Now it's 4 hours later and an advil and my tooth hurts more than when I went in! I have has fillings before but never felt much pain after I had a tooth filled. DO I need a root canal?

Non-dentist speaking here....if your tooth was already sore the nerve was already irritated. All the drilling and filling activity probably added to the nerve's sensitivity especially if the cavity was close to it. Most likely temporary and once the nerve has a chance to cam down it should stop. If it doesn't, obviously go back and get it checked.

You can probably expect this pain and soreness for at least a couple days. Teeth are very sensitive and the gums don't like to be disturbed. Just give it time.
