How long has your symptoms been going, days? Weeks? Are the fillings composite fillings, and are they in front or back/ both sides of mouth? Would you classify your mouth as itchy or burning tongue? Final question is was food getting stuck frequently between teeth before replacement? These answers will help me give you more specific info. Pictures or X-rays help too.
