Hello. I have 3 cavity fililing in the upper right section of my mouth at the same time which were not warned to be root canal worthy by any means. Not really any pain after but I tried to avoid the area. I did end up avoiding the area for eating because it was sensitive and to the cold as well. There was a lot of drilling involved, and I was getting concerned since he wasn't my regular dentist and seemed to be doing excessive drilling. The teeth are filed down way smaller than the teeth on the upper left side of my mouth right now. 3 1/2 weeks later the pain seems to be worsening. Very scared on malpractice. Please let me know the 100* truth for real.

I'm so sorry you are having troubles...

It may be prudent to go to a separate Dentist, let them get a look at the trouble area you are having, and ask for their honest opinion! That is what I would do. Go to another Dentist, get their "hands and eyes on" approach/view, and opinion. Then you'll be able to get the best answer. That would be my suggestion.

you don’t have any actual insight?
Dentist: Just Dental Truths!, Dentist replied 6 months ago

Well I can speculate highly that there may have been a lot of tooth material removed, as you mentioned. That would cause tooth sensitivity.

However, I can't visually compare and contrast over the internet, as I could with a visual "hands on" exam. Does that make sense?

If you are sore, something can usually be fixed too, but a second set of eyes would be helpful, and done BEST by a visual exam - hands on.

What do you think about getting a Dentist to look at your worked on teeth as well as all of your teeth so they can be compared to each other, with regard to same size vs. different sizes now? And what they honestly would suggest - to have done to fix the pain or discomfort you are experiencing?

Well, I'm going to have to "hit the hay" for some sleep. Again, I'm sorry about your discomfort. And I'd encourage you to get a second opinion from another Dentist, from a different office, as to what they would recommend. I hope this helps you. I'll check back tomorrow to see if you have any further comments or thoughts, OK?

Best regards ***** *****

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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!!
