I have been having some discomfort on tooth #13 for the past two weeks. Three days ago, I went to the dentist to have it looked at. After taking some x-rays, the dentist said I needed a right away because the tooth was severely infected. He also drilled and prepped tooth #12 for a crown. That night, I was in horrible pain. I called the dentist the next about the pain and he referred me to an endodontist.
I went to the yesterday and he also performed a canal on #12. When the wore off, I got pressure sensation in my cheek. I also get deep pain in my left temple.
Does anyone know what this pain in my face is? The dentist said nothing is wrong with the root-canalled teeth. I am so scared that the pain is permanent. Please help!
