i had some decay drilled out of my tooth yesterday and a deep cavity filled. when the anaesthetic wore off it HURT! the pain has dulled now but its sooo sensitive..is this ok? will it get better or do I have to return to the dentist (i'm such a coward I really don't like going to the dentist)
sort by best latest
Thankyou Duffsmom! Her office is closed tomorrow so it has a day to settle down then I will have to call on thursday...I don't want toothache over Christmas. I think the dread of it is worse than the actual visit most times!
Here's another update! It didn't completely settle, and developed into intense periods of pain. On Christmas Eve, one week after the original filling, I had the tooth removed. It was not infected, but the nerve was dying due to the large filling..
