What is wrong when the teeth your dentist filled are still hurting three weeks later?

It means that might have a small hole in your tooth with the filling ( which might not be visible.) you will have to go to the dentist again to see if the cavity has continued to grow in your gum or tooth.

It is possible that the type of local anesthetic the dentist used was particularly potent on you, although 24 hours is unusual. It is also possible the procedure the dentist performed may have bruised a nerve and that is why you are still numb. This is called a transient or temporary parasthesia. In severe cases, parasthesia can persist for months. Regardless of the cause, it is important that you let your dentist know you are experiencing this lingering numbness.

Their rockets were empty tubes filled with gunpowder. Later these were improved and still are used

You should tell him/her that they're hurting you, and if they still do it, write them a letter, and say your upsset about it.

Go to the dentist! Never try to fix that kind of thing yourself it will only make it worse...yea the dentist can be expensive but it will cost you more later when you screw up your tooth!

You should follow up with your dentist. There could be damage to the TMJ, a problem with an adjacent tooth, or a remnant of tooth remaining in the socket, or maybe some other pathology.
