Post pain after fillings

I recently had some fillings done on one of my lower right teeth. it was fine after that, but then some time later, one of my upper right teeth started hurting, but only when i'd eat food. The upper right tooth also had an old filling, which seems to be the part of the tooth thats hurting the most. So i went to a dentist, a new one, and he said i had a cavity in that tooth, did some xrays, and then did a filling. its been 4 days and its still hurting, more so where the old filling is. Im not sure whats causing it, although im scheduled to go back to the dentist. Also there 's no sensivity to hot or cold except where the new fillings are. Any help would be appreciated.

If they are silver fillings it may take a while for them to settle down. I know it takes my teeth a good three weeks or so to settle down. You may want to try using sensodyne tooth paste or eating a couple of boiled eggs! good luck

Thanks. Actually it was an old silver filling. Dentist said i needed to have filling replace and he's going to use a composite (sp?) filling. But this helps with the new silver filling, which are still sensitive.
