Toothache while eating

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: jay  (3 years ago)
Hello,

Two years ago, I lost a filling in one of my rear molars (upper right) and I haven’t gone to a dentist since then. I thought that I could chew food with my left side molars and did so until one of my molars on the left also started to hurt.

Now I cannot eat properly with the left and right molars, and when I bite down, I feel terrible pain (only when I bite into something or when I chew). I’ve only now become aware of the consequences of not going to the dentist.

What should I do now? I’m only 13 years old. Could I come to you too??

Please give me an answer.

Dear Jay,

First of all, don’t be afraid.The way you describe it, it could be an inflammation in the bone in the root tip area. Hypothesis: The tooth dies due to exposed dentin; necrotic tooth tissue causes an inflammation in the bone.

It should be possible to solve the problem with a good root canal treatment, so don’t delay; just visit the dentist instead. Maybe the teeth concerned are baby teeth; if this is the case, the sore teeth will simply be removed.

I have that right now -a broken filling, and I am scheduled for a root canal treatment. Since the filling was broken/lost, there's a chance that decay has gotten around it's original location.
