Extreme pain a year after deep filling.

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: lovleyRachel  (8 years ago)
My dentist wanted to do a "deep filling" to save me from getting a root canal. He used the white filling and its pretty much the entire tooth. I've experienced cold sensitivity the entire time. But in the past two days I have had extreme throbbing cant function pain that I can feel throughout my whole lower jaw. I also suffer from TMJ and wondering if this is TMJ or something actually wrong with my tooth.

Being a hygeinst, I would like to say that using a cotton swab, wipe saliva and excess plaque from your teeth before brushing on the mixture. Leave the mixture on your teeth for a minute before gently brushing it off with a toothbrush. You can also purchase a whitening kit from your dentist that you'll use at home. Hope this will help you.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose when dentists take a chance like this trying to save you money. Chances are the root is going bad, but your dentist can check if it is from TMJ. In the future, know that leakage is a very big problem with large white resin fillings. But it may have blown up if an amalgam or glass ionomer was done instead. It is hard to predict whether dental pulps will heal or not. Returning to normal is more likely to happen in patients younger than 20.
