Any armchair dentists? What is going on!?
Here is my long, painful story-
Dental insurance through work changed and I had to go to a new dentist.
Went for a cleaning and they indicated in needed 15 some odd fillings (a few new -mainly replacing old). My teeth were not bothering me at all.
Did (3) fillings.
One month later horrible pain in one that was filled. Went in -it was abcessed. So root canal.
Went in for the cap post root canal. The dentist could not complete the appointment as I was in god awful pain despite multiple injections (as in tears running down my face pain).
X-rays indicated the tooth next to it was also starting to abscess. They started me on antibiotics.
The next day and the week since that tooth has caused me the most god awful pain. I have been back to the dentist once but other than prescribed meds she feels she can't do anything until things calm down. A root canal is scheduled for next week.
Meanwhile I suffer. Can't eat. And have popped a gnat hemotoma from the injections in the roof of my mouth.
I scheduled a 2nd opinion (out of pocket) but ended up canceling as I couldn't imaging anyone rooting around in there just yet. The pain is that bad.
I am frustrated as I went in with no pain...and now have had 1 root canal and am scheduled for another while enduring the worst pain of my life.
So I guess -2nd suck it up and reschedule 2nd opinion?
