doesn't need an adjustment. Sometimes when you're numb you don't bite
normally when your dentist goes to check your bite because you can't really
feel it. Sometimes it's just a simple adjustment. If the bite is ok, then
it's one of two things. One, your teeth could just be sensitive to being
drilled on. It is trauma to the tooth, so for some people it just takes
time to bounce back. This is called reversible pulpitis. Or two, the
filling was really deep and the nerve has been irritated and it seems to be
getting worse over time. This is irreversible pulpitis and means that you
need a root canal on the tooth. But the first step is always to go back to
your dentist and let him or her do some testing to see what the problem is.

It is normal to experience sensitivity to temperatures after a filling is done as any work on a tooth can cause irritation to the nerve. However, the sensitivity to temperatures should subside with time and should not worsen. If the sensitivity is getting worse, go see your dentist.
Sometimes you may experience sensitivity to biting. This is typically an indication that the filling requires an adjustment by the dentist. This can happen especially if you were anesthetized for the procedure as it is difficult to know whether you are biting down the way you normally do when the bite is checked.
Go back to your dentist if this is the case. The adjustment is easy and quickly resolves the sensitivity on the tooth.
the bite might be off and need to be adjusted. Was the cavity really deep? Is your tooth now sensitive to hot or cold? Your tooth may just need time to calm down or the filling might have to be removed and a sedative filling placed. Was this the first filling in the tooth or the fifth? Every time a tooth is worked on it irritates the nerve, sort of like your shin being kicked - the first time's not too bad. But keep kicking it day after day after a while it'll hurt for no apparent reason. Sometimes the nerve just gets irritated and need an ibuprofen or "tylenol" to help it to calm down. If your tooth is still hurting, see your dentist.
It depends what is the pain.
slightly high, you may have pain.
1) Treatment of a very deep cavity, therefore near the nerve..
2) If the patient already had sensitive teeth may be a sign of clenching
3) Patient should not use a whitening toothpaste if teeth are already sensitive
