I got a cavity on my second molar on the lower left side filled about two months ago. After getting the filling, the tooth was extremely painful. The dentist said it would get better in a few days. After two weeks, I went back to the dentist because the pain was killing me. He said I would need a and a crown. I agreed and they did the procedure. The numbing medication didn’t seem to work completely. I felt the entire procedure. It was very painful.
Two days after the procedure, the pain was terrible. The painkiller would only give me temporary relief. Until now, two months after the initial treatment of the cavity, the pain is still here. Is this a sign of failed canal? The dentist said it would get better in a few days. I feel like the pain is getting worse each day. Can I go back to the dentist and have the tooth pulled? Please help! The pain is killing me. Thank you.
