I had a painful molar tooth, next to a previously pulled
I had a painful molar tooth, next to a previously pulled wisdom tooth, it was very sensitive to heat and cold and already had a filling. I went to the dentist who advised me I will need a crown and possible root canal. I had a temporary crown treatment and temporary crown fitted 3 days ago and have been in intermittent SEVERE PAIN ever since, pain killers don't touch the pain. I went back to my dentist yesterday and he improved the thickness of the temporary crown, just in case it could have caused sensitivity. He also said that I may need a root canal. When I get the pain episodes it seems to be coming from the nerve, burning all the way into the side of my tongue and also shooting up into my face. My fear is that I can't wait for the proper crown in 2 week's time because I can't cope with the pain. Also, will the root canal give me pain and subsequently infections? Am I better off having the tooth removed? Thank you. … read more

How does this service work? how does this service work? I
I got a crown on a cracked molar about 14 months ago. The tooth never settled in... always felt discomfort, pressure discomfort, and strong cold sensitivity. About a month ago it changed to pain with pressure, plus heat sensitivity. Saw my dentist, he recomended root canal. Just had my root canal today. About 4 hours after finishing, my crown popped off in my mouth, just as I was sitting doing work on my laptop. Came right off with a flick of my tongue. Just got back from the endodontist who put a new temp filling in and re-cemented the crown. But when the crown was off, I could see that the surface of the tooth and the inside surface of the crown was black and splotchy in many places. So here's my question - what the heck? Is it possible that my crown 14 months ago was never sealed properly, which led to the prolonged discomfort and ultimate need for a root canal? Is the black coloring a sign of food and drink and saliva working in under the crown? I have a number of photos I took before getting it recemented this afternoon. … read more

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
