Avatar f tn Sounds like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> abcess, I had an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>e of this this spring. Got a bump an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> the gum above the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span>. It can make the tooth hurt, but it doesn't have to. You need to go see a dentist, not good to have infectian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>s in the teeth. You need antibiotics and then a root canal with a crown. Very expensive, but the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>ly chance to save the tooth.
Avatar n tn Upan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> a return visit, he resized the shape of the filling and the pain was even worse. He then said that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> was fractured in three places and would need a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>crown</span>. He shaved the tooth down, said he thinks he filed down all three of the fractured areas and fitted me with a temporary crown. He said if that didn't help, I would need root canal. I am still having pain when biting down (although not as severe as it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>ce was).

I am begining to think the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> under my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>crown</span> has become infected as even the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> where the crown meets is beginning to turn black.

Avatar m tn Okay, so I chipped my molar and the dentist suggested I replace it with a crown and so I did. However, with a chipped <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and a temporary <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>crown</span> I was pain free and without sensitivity sensatian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>s.

Avatar f tn he said there was a pinhole opening to the root but decided to fill the hole and build up the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tooth</span> and prepare for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>crown</span>. after the buildup and before the crown (2 days later) I went back because it still was bothering me. he said the bite was off and filed it down. the next day i was in extreme pain and could not reach the dentist. the following day i was put an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> antibiotics and told I needed a root canal. i had the first step of a root canal with a temporary filling.

I had some pain while chewing with the temporary, but not with temperature. The dentist said that she didn't think that I needed a root canal. While she was away an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> vacatian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>, my temporary tooth fell off while I was flossing, and I had to see another dentist in the practice. She fitted me with my permanent crown, despite telling her that my tooth hurt.
