Hi, I got a tooth filling because of cavities yesterday… Today when I bite down, one tooth at the back of my jaw seems to hit the tooth at the top, (second tooth after the bottom left canine tooth)…I can eat because of this without pain… Whats the problem? Help would be appreciated.

You’re not giving me a lot to go on. I don’t know if this is a white filling or an amalgam filling, a large filling or a small filling. The most like cause, though, of a tooth with a new filling hurting when you bite down, is that the filling is high. I’d call your dentist, tell him or her what you’re experiencing, and hopefully a simple bite adjustment will take care of it.
There are other possibilities, but that’s the most likely.
