My former dentist performed two root canal treatments on my molars and one of the roots was overfilled. Subsequently, this tooth gave me intermittent pain for years. Finally, the tooth was pulled.
The current dentist is unsatisfied with the remaining treatments. He says that they were badly executed – i.e., not deep enough. He would even like to pull one of the teeth instead of it with a crown. His general opinion is that it is better to overfill a than not fill it completely.
My fears of suffering more pain – as with the last overfilled tooth – are overridden by the argument that if this is the case, will also cause irritation.
Many doctors, many opinions, but I pin my hope on yours.
