Post Pain following a filling...is it normal?

I had a filling today on my top back molar and since the novacaine wore off I can feel the nerve in the tooth or something. Its not really pain, but like when you drink something cold and your tooth is real sensitive, only moreso. It doesn't hurt but it is uncomfortable. I have had a few fillings before and don't recall it feeling like this.

It was a small cavity and the tooth didn't hurt at all before I went in. They had to give me extra novacaine (or whatever they use) because the first shot didn't really work.

Is this normal or should I call the dentist tomorrow?

Thanks,

Nikki

Sensitivity to cold/hot after a filling is normal, so give the tooth a couple of weeks to calm down. If it doesn't get better, then go to see the dentist.
