Pain under temporary bridge?

Hello,

I recommend going back to your dentist as soon as possible to have those teeth checked. Your dentist will need to take an xray to check for decay/nerve inflammation/infection. 

The pain could be due to nerve inflammation or infection in the tooth which may require root canal therapy before permanent bridge is cemented.
