root canal treatment ahhhhhhhh

Recommended Posts

Ok girls i need some advise.I had root canal treatment on a crowned front tooth on Saturday,and i am in a lot of discomfort.If im honest its got worse as the day has gone on.Its not pain that i cant tolerate but i think it my gum.

It didnt hurt getting it done he was very generous with the local but if i knock it with my top teeth it hurts but it has stopped me going into work today and its making me lisp.Its similar to a pain you get from an ulcer or better still if you have eaten food with to much acid like tomatoes.Do you think i have an infection or is this the norm following root canal work.I know he drilled like he was searching for oil and i could feel and hear him digging about i was in the chair for 40 mins.I think i should go back to see him or should i give it a bit longer?

I've never had one but from what I here it shouldn't be hurting after the procedure. I would call your dentist ASAP and see what they recommend.

 

Feel better!

i also had a root canal done on a front tooth which had been crowned. There was some discomfort following the procedure but not to the degree that you seem to be describing. I would give your dentist a ring and maybe just describe to him what you are feeling. No need to stay in pain any longer then necessary. Feel better!

I would go and get it looked at too... it could be a number of different things. Does it feel sore on the gum or more like tooth pain? If it's gum, it could just be from the crown prep (sometimes your gums get cut/ pushed around) or the crown could be too long and is pushing on your gum. If it's tooth pain, it could be your tooth/ligament are bruised from the RCT. .. or if your tooth was infected, it could still be the area is healing... often anti-inflamatories are prescribed (like advil/motrin)... or anitbiotics... either way go get it looked at and if you think it's your gums, try rinsing with warm salt water to help with healing... hope this helps and good luck.

PS, I used to be a dental assistant and am now a dental hygienist just so you know I'm not pulling this from thin air!!

Im back from the dentist,and hes prescribed metronidazole and ibuprofen.He thinks it will take a couple of weeks to settle.I asked if there was a chance he hadnt removed all the root and he showed me the xray and the front tooth only has one nerve.He thinks it may be very bruised hence the pain.He didnt look at the tooth but that said im in more pain than i was even first thing this morning.Ijust hope the meds kick in.Ive alreadyrung work to say im not going in to work tomorrow.

If it dosent settle i can have someone else do it again or get it taken out.

We dont have £2,000 for an implant and i really dont want to have a false tooth on a plate its my bottom front one !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Antibiotics PLEASE work

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
