Q.

Did dentist mess up?

A while ago i went to a the dentist to have my fillings repaired as they had been breaking down for a while. My normal dentist was not available so i saw another dentist. He said according to files or an x-ray or something i had had root canal before. I strangely cant remember having root-canal or though i do remember the dentist previously discussing the possibility with me. Anyway he decided to break down all four fillings and redo them without anything to numb the pain. The fillings are in my back molars. 1 on the top on each side and 1 one the bottom on each side. a few times a felt a sensation and scewed up my face, then he would go gentler. But ever since i left the dentist anything sweet, hot or cold that goes near those teeth makes them ache. I have never ever had this problem before. it' s very fustrating. a few days ago i had such a sore clenched jaw on the left side, i figured out it was coming from pressure behind one of my molars with a filling on the upper left side. What could he have done to my teeth. i' m so angry. i saw him about 6 months ago, maybe even longer and am a 19year old female.

It is very difficult ot say what could be the problem withuot seeing your xrays and an examination.
If he didn't use anaesthetic it is very likley the teeth were root treated before.
return to him and have him explain what wsa done and possible causes for the pain.

Thanks for your help. i dont really want to pay to go back to dentist that possibly doesnt know what he is doing and could make the matter worse.
