Cracked Tooth?

Posted by: cmmillner  (8 years ago)
What tools can be used to determine what tooth is causing the pain? I know that when I had a tooth removed to have an implant, the surgen just touched the tooth with somthing, and I came off the chair. Was it heat, cold, vibration? Please let me know, because that Surgen has retired, and his replacement doesn't seem to be aware of these tools.

Dear Cmmillner !

Let me ask you some questions:
1. Do you have any decayed tooth in your mouth ?
2. Any dental restoration ?
3. Does it feel like all of your teeth hurt ?
4. Does your head got any hit recently ?

I just had two teeth (side by side) that had cavities, fixed. Two days after this, several pulses of severe pain from this area. Now, pain now and then. Cannot determine what tooth is to blame. Need to determine this, and have that tooth replaced with an implant. One would think that by using cold, hot, or somthing, could determine what tooth it is.

Dear Cmmillner !

My question is the following: Why dou you think that the best solution in your situation is an implantate?

A tooth can be saved in lots of way.

First of all we have to find out, what causes the pain.

My advise for you is to search a dentist, make an X-ray, then you can find the source of the problem and the pain.

I also advise to find a specialist who can make a precise diagnosis and the right treatment.

Nothing is better than our natural teeth when they are healthy and treated well.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to send a message!

X Ray shows nothing. One of the two teeth had a "Deep" filling. It seems to be sensative to somthing warm, but I can't seem to get my Dentist, or the Oral Surgen, to try this. Perhaps I am expecting too much from them.

1. Electrical tests and thermal tests.
2. Biting on a cotton swab tooth by tooth.
3. Applying dye to see if there are cracks.
4. If on the upper, selective anesthesia of teeth.

Implants should not be your first choice. Root canals have a very high success rate.
