Question Pain in tooth after pits in sealant were removed

I had a couple of pits in the old sealant of a premolar. When I told the dental assistant about them, she had me open my mouth, and then before I could stop her, she had a tool in my mouth and removed the pits. When she removed the tool from my mouth, I felt gritty pieces of sealant and maybe tooth that I ended up swallowing. So I went home and didn't think anything more about that tooth.

The next day I woke up with pain in that tooth and it has been in pain for the past few weeks. I haven't experienced any pain in this tooth previously. So I looked in the mirror, and I noticed that the assistant also ended up smoothing down part of my natural tooth surface (I examined this tooth before going to the dentist, so I remember what it looked like).

How can that tooth be in such pain after pits in the sealant were removed (along with smoothing away of some of my natural tooth)? I didn't think that I would end up being in pain from this. Now I wish I had spoken up as soon as I heard and felt her using a tool in my mouth because that tooth was pain-free for all my life until now, and she didn't tell me what she was going to do when I opened my mouth or I would have not agreed to have her work on my tooth. Is the dentist responsible for remedying this problem and for taking an x-ray (if needed) to see what is wrong?
