Why does my jaw ache after getting a filling?

Q.
I had a filling put in two days ago which replaced the last one that fell out. This exposed the remaining tooth somewhat until I had the new filling. Now, after getting idt done I am finding that my jaw aches a bit around the area. Is this normal? The tooth feels fine, which is strange. Should I have a check up or will it abate?

Hi, many thanks for your email. After a filling it can take some time to settle down. My advice would be to give it a week. If things get better then fine, however, if the pain increases in severity or becomes acute go back to consult with your dentist to see what the problem is.
