I am having pains in my tooth and my throat, what should I do?

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011
Q.

I had a filling fall out about 6 months ago. There has been no pain. a week ago i bit down on a sandwhich and a piece went insude my tooth causing pain. After a couple days it was feeling better. About three days later late in the evening it started hurting while i was just sitting reading a book. The pain increased to the point i had to go to the ER. I was given Vicadin and Penicilin. Two days later I cannot open my mouth only about 1/2 an inch and it hurts to swallow. the tooth is not really causing me pain. What is going on and how do I make it better?

Should I have a crown fitted even though I have some discomfort in that tooth?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Dear Dr , I have recently been advised by my dentist that I require a crown fitted on one of my back teeth, the tooth has already had a root filling about 9/10 years ago, I cannot recall ever having problems with the root filling but upon changing my dentist they have noticed that my root filling is actually broken at the bottom of one side (if that makes sense) this tooh was re filled and I have had discomfort in the area since the filling, they have advised that I should still go ahead with the crown, I am however concerned that after having the crown fitted the root breakage could give me trouble which could possibly lead to extra root work and another crown being required… which would be the best way forward in your opinion !!

My dentist has put crowns on my fillings, why is this?

Monday, May 23rd, 2011
Q.

Hello,

I had a very large deep filling 6 months ago.

My dentist was not sure if it would work as it was so deep and a large amount of tooth missing. It did work and now 6 months on I went for a check up and he has booked me in for a crown fitting.

The dentist provied no explanation for the crown and I was left confused. I am not altogether happy with my dentist, I am never provided with full explanations and all my appointments seems rushed.

I got a second opinion from a dentist friend (they did not actually see me, but we talked over the phone) my friend said a crown is not needed as the filling/tooth is not causing bother to me. I also asked my hygenist who said the crown may not me neccessary.

I am usure what to do? Stay as I am with the filling and see how I go or have a crown fitted?

Get another opinion from a different dentist?

Thanks

Do Mercury fillings have a adverse effect on multiple sclerosis sufferers ?

Thursday, May 5th, 2011
Q.

Hello I have suffered with multiple sclerosis for some years now . I recently read an article saying that mercury can have adverse effects because I suffer with M.S.
How true is this? I have a real dental phobia and finding out this has made me worried.

I have just had a deep metal filling
should I be concerned or not because last time I had the metal filling removed and replaced with a white filling that’s why I am worried cause as i suffer already with MS i am scared this will make my MS worse. Is there any alternative fillings i can have that are completely safe or would i have to pay extra for non mercury fillings. 
Regards

After a bad experience with a filling my dentist has now suggested another to help fix slight tooth decay, is this my best option?

Friday, April 8th, 2011
Q.

I have just been to the dentist and have been told that WITH this xray they THINK they see slight decay.They want to remove a bit of my tooth to see the severity of the decay if any then either put a filling or whatever. I have already had a filling and it went horribly wrong when it came out a couple days after it being put in. this guy is saying he sees SLIGHT decay. I dont understand its so frustrating becuase i only get my teeth pains when i drink cold drinks and it was really bad a couple weeks ago but i have been using sensodine regularily and the pain is gone pretty much vanished but popps up SLIGHTLY ever so slightly now and then but very rarely. I do not want a filling and make problems worse for myself in the long run especially if the filling comes out like the first time. Im just very scared. What do i do???

P.S. i accidentally posted this as a comment on another question… ive never been here before and was slightly confused. Sorry

Is it a straight forward procedure to replace amalgam fillings with composite fillings?

Friday, April 8th, 2011
Q.

Hi Andrew,

My question is about replacing amalgam fillings with composite and whether it is a fairly straightforward process or could it lead to complications? Are composite fillings long lasting?

Thank you for answering.
