He just had 6 dental cavity fillings in his mouth. Ever since, from next day onwards, he has been having continuous headache in his central head region. Although he hasn't had any pain in the jaw or ear area. Can this be because of this cavity fillings? My doubts are based on the fact that this procedure was carried out by a newly opened dental clinic in the area, and also before going with the procedure, the dentist didn't take any x-rays to gauge the depth of cavities.

If you have pain both in teeth and in head,then the headache is related to dental problem...CONSULT YOUR DENTIST and inspect the depth of the cavity filled.But if you have headache alone without any toothpain,then it is not related to any dental condition,KINDLY CONSULT YOUR NEUROLOGIST.
Taking x-ray before filling is not mandatory, it depends on type of pain, type of cavity. You may visit same dentist and request for diagnosis of your pain.
