  • If there is pain and swelling after replacing the post then that means the tooth is infected. In this case you have to go back to dentist who will either remove the post and do the treatment for infection and again put the post if possible or you have to go for extraction of tooth. Till then you can take some pain killer tab and avoid eating from that side.
