I had a canal done on my lower right molar about a month ago. Five days later, my lower lip and chin were still numb. The dentist said, it was due to the injection, it was normal and that I should give it a time.
After two weeks, I had a terrible pain in my chin and felt a lot of pressure in my and bottom teeth. I went to the dentist and he prescribed antibiotics then sent me home. Two days later, I was in the worst pain of my entire life. I decided to see another dentist for a second opinion. The new dentist took x-rays and showed me that the tooth had a significant overfill. He suggested waiting to see if the problem would improve on its own. The pain only got worse after seeing him, so he suggested removal of the tooth. He said I should get an put in. He referred me to an whom I have yet to see.
Do you know of any other alternative to extraction to treat overfill? I would like to save this tooth as much as possible. Please help! I would be very grateful for any insight you can provide.
