My tooth #30 was filled ten months ago. For the past couple of months, the tooth started to hurt to anything cold. The dentist said she would replace the filling. When she removed the old filling out, she told me the nerve looked bruised and that I needed a root canal. When the filling was replaced, the pain went away.
Do you think I still need a even though the new filling seemed to have fixed the problem? The dentist said the traumatized nerve would eventually give me problems in the future. I just want another opinion before I go and have a canal treatment. Any help would be great. Thanks!
