4 months of tooth pain after fikling

Posted , 5 users are following.

I'm at a loss for what to do next.

Four months ago I had two cavities filled, one on each side on the bottom. Immediately I started experiencing mild to moderate pain. I went back after 3 weeks and they said the bite was too high and did an adjustment. She told me that if my could take up to two weeks to heal. I waited 4 weeks then went back for a second adjustment.

At the second adjustment, the dentist took X-rays and said that a root canal wasn't necessary and that everything looks fine. She adjusted the bite some more and told me the same 2 week window. It's now been another 5 eeeks and I'm still having daily pain. It's getting worse, not better. I do grind my teeth but the pain is the same with or without a nightguard.

I'm debating on going back a third time or finding another dentist. I don't want to pay additional money, but this pain isn't bareable for much longer. I'm ready to pull it out myself! What should I do?

    You said your having pain but are you having pain in both teeth that were filled or just one of them?

    After my surgery i was in severe pain for 5 weeks. Turned out to be Hyperalgesia. I have chronic pain and take opiates every day. I suggest you look it up because it might be that. I obviously dont know your history. But it may be an answer. It certainly was mine.
