Re: Throbbing/non-sensitive pain after filling
Usually any pain after fillings (which is common) whether it comes from the tooth, gums or the anaesthesia shot usually subsides within the same day or at most 1-2 days. This type of pain is usually mild.
In your case it sounds like the tooth inner pulp tissue may have become inflamed. Sometimes the pulp heals by itself over time, sometimes it deteriorates and requires a root canal treatment.
I suggest you see your dentist if this pain does not improve or goes away completely in the next couple of days.
