I am in the middle of getting a lot of dental work. I haven’t been to a dentist for two years since I got neuralgia from a filling. Yesterday I got a root canal on a tooth (not bad side) that had broken badly. It went well and I have minimal pain.
The dentist thought I needed a filling on the bad tooth, but wasn’t sure so had the endo take a look at it. The endo informed me that my trigger tooth has a very large cavity above the previous filling done two years ago. He says that it needs a root canal because it’s very close the nerve. It seems I have to get this done but of course I am very worried. This tooth started the whole mess and caused me to come out of a long remission.
Has anyone gotten work done on their “bad tooth”? My pain is about 90% covered by gabapentin 500. My pain there is burning, aching type pain. Can anyone please comment who has been through this. Thanks jazmin.
