Hello! I am having quite a big problem right now and I am trying to find any help I can get, which currently isn't a lot.
About 3 weeks ago I went to a new dentist (moved to a new country) for a teeth cleaning. He told me I had three cavities that needed filling and that I should come back a few days later. I found this odd because I nothing hurt and I never had any problems with my teeth since I was a child and to have 3 cavities at once seemed weird to me. Even more because 3 months earlier I went to see my orthodontist back home and she didn't mention I needed any work done. Still I went back for the treatment.
He filled in one tooth at the left down back, one right up back, and one right down back. He gave me injections at each of these places. While he was doing the work I was still experiencing pain, even though I was given the anesthesia and he said that the fillings were superficial. After I left and the anesthesia wore off I was still experiencing a lot of pain in my right jaw.
It has been 3 weeks since that appointment now. My left side is perfectly fine. But my right jaw and all the teeth both up and down are in constant pain, sensitive to fluids of any temperature and to the bite. I feel the joint of my jaw is stiff and it hurts. Also I do not think that the teeth he worked on hurt, but I am experiencing pain in the teeth more up front. I have been taking pain killers and am going to see him soon.
But I would really like to know what this could be? Did he damage a nerve? Did he not fill in the fillings properly?
I would very much appreciate your help!
