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

I had tooth sensitivity especially to pressure for a few months. Then a piece broke off of my tooth and I went to a dentist. He filed it down and got it ready for a crown. The crown is made but he is concerned because I still have some sensitivity. I don't know if it is infected or what the situation is and I am afraid of putting on the permanent Crown if it needs a root canal. … read more

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

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!!
