If a tooth was drilled to remove decay but the dentist forgot to fill it would there be pain once the local wore off?

The dentist forgot to place the filling. I've never heard of such a thing. Why don't you tell the dentist to finish the restoration? You can't walk around like that.

Depending on how deep the decay was, it could be sensitive, or painful, after the local anesthesia wore off.

I dont know if thats the case or not. I ask because I cant visually see the filling like i can on top of other teeth filled at the same time. I also dont know what a drilled tooth would look like without a filling.

Thats why i wonder if it would be obvious from pain alone.

That's what I figured--it would be highly improbable that the filling was forgotten.

It usually takes a couple days for a tooth to feel normal after a filling has been placed.
