Tooth pain after composite filling?

Hi everyone,

This is my first filling, which I got today. It is a composite filling, on one of my bottom left back molar. What's concerning me is that it hurts. I understand that I just got it today, but it hurts without being bite sensitive. It is a bit sensitive to temperature, but nothing concerning.

Is there any reason it would hurt without being bite sensitive or overly sensitive to temperature? I'm terrified of a root canal!

Thank you!
