Customer: hi dr katz, my name is ***** ***** and my issue is that about 10 days ago, i started experiencing extreme pain
with my #12 tooth which has been permanently crowned 2 1/2 years ago. My crown
is wobbly and the pain under the crown is excruciating! I went to a general dentist
3 days ago, he took an xray, said that he didn't see any cracks, or abseces but put me on the clindamycin. After 2 days, im still in extreme pain, so i called the dentist office back yesterday, the rep stated she would see if the dentist would give me another antibiotic and get back to me before the end of the day ( they close at 2 pm on Saturday) i never received that call back or another antibiotic. Im not sure what to do as im still hurting so bad, and now i have no other antibiotic and my endodontist appointment isn't til next Friday the 18th. I tried calling around for an emergency dentist
but could not get ahold of anyone... not sure what is going on in my mouth, but i am miserable ( also i taste blood in my mouth when i bite down a little bit)
