I have had two fillings for many years. One of them fell out but gives me no pain at all. The other one that stayed hurts constantly. The only relief I get is when I put cool water on it. Even then, the relief is short-lived. It’s weird to me that the tooth that is… Continue reading Only Water Helps My Tooth Pain

Should the Venue Pay for My Emergency Dental Visit?
I went to this smallish bar/venue that I have been to many times before. Generally, it’s a really chill place to hang, but this night it got crazy. Somewhere to the right of me a fight broke out. I don’t know what happened, but I’m getting pushed by a crowd. The bouncer comes anRead More
How Long Can a Root Canal Wait?
I went for a check up, which is covered by my insurance completely. While there, he told me I need a root canal treatment. I was a bit surprised about that because none of my teeth bother me. I was wondering if I DO need a root canal treatment, how long can I wait to… Continue reading How Long Can a Root Canal Wait?
Dealing with a Broken Tooth
My husband recently fell and broke both of his front teeth. Do you know what we need to do to get this fixed? Will he need to extract them, or maybe get dental crowns? I will be honest that he is not crazy about the dentist so I’m trying to figure out what he needs… Continue reading Dealing with a Broken Tooth
Snap-On Smile to Replace a Tooth?
I have an infected first molar. There is not a molar behind it. My choices are a root canal treatment (which is rather expensive) or extract the tooth and get a dental implant (which is more expensive). Of course my dentist gives me all the expensive options. What I’m wondering is if I can Read… Continue reading Snap-On Smile to Replace a Tooth?
Her Dentist Majorly Missed This
I need some help. I had an accident which left me with damage to my chin and side of my face. I did see a dentist after being released from the ER. She decided not to do anything for at least two weeks. By then, the tooth was starting to turn dark. When she went… Continue reading Her Dentist Majorly Missed This
Who Broke This Man’s Tooth?
I need some advice about an incident with my tooth. I have a 30+ year old crown. I was in for a checkup and my dentist said that I have decay under the crown and he will need to do a root canal treatment. I didn’t have any signs of a tooth infection. No abcess.… Continue reading Who Broke This Man’s Tooth?
Is a Tooth Infection Really Dangerous?
I have a back tooth (not the wisdom tooth) that broke a while ago. Now the area hurts and my cheek is swollen. It is also starting to hurt in my neck. Someone told me this is dangerous, but I just don’t have money for a dentist right now. Is it really that dangerous or… Continue reading Is a Tooth Infection Really Dangerous?
Should I See an Oral Surgeon?
I had a root canal treatment some years ago. It was not a pleasant experience and I will admit I did not follow up well. My dentist didn’t either so I never had the cap placed on it. The next thing I know the filling fell out and shortly after that the tooth started hurting… Continue reading Should I See an Oral Surgeon?
My Crown Feels Weird
I don’t like going to the dentist. Because I avoided it, I ended up having to get a root canal treatment and a dental crown. It’s felt weird from the beginning, but my dentist said that is just because I’m not used to the new crown. I decided to give it a few weeks, but… Continue reading My Crown Feels Weird
