Question:
Pain from a Filling: About 3 months ago I had a cavity filled. Upper left, 3rd from rear. It was sensitive to cold. All seemed well for a week after.

Then severe pain, radiating up from the tooth into my upper jaw bone. I've been to the dentist every week since. It's been refilled, along with the tooth next to it and the bite has been adjusted almost every visit.

My teeth are now sensitive in that area. I cannot chew without pain on my left side. Currently I am on 8 days of Penicillian and told I may need a root canal. It's been painful so long,I can't distinguish where it's all coming from now.

I'm wondering if it's best to go to another dentist...what could this all be. Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated! ...Visitor from CT

Answer:
Get a second opinion from an endodontist.

Endodontists are dentists who specialize in diagnosing pain that comes from within the tooth. If you require root canal therapy they will also be able to take care of you.
