Does tooth pain after a filling mean that I need root canal?
Posted 15 October 2009 - 05:01 PM
I knocked out 1/2 of the teeth on the bottom jaw. Several others on the top are messed up because I have cavities where the dentist patched the broken teeth. All the back molars are full of silver fillings because of the bands from when I had braces. I'm not even 40 yet but I'm wondering if dentures are the way to go? Is a root canal worth it when my teeth are in bad shape?
I really don't want dentures because it makes me feel older just thinking about it. But I don't want to shell out the dough and then need dentures anyway. help

I have had my teeth go both ways. I would just give it some time and see if it relaxes.

Maybe this is what you are experiencing.
Also, no dentist worth is salt will yank your teeth out like that. They will all want to try and save your teeth. So dentures will probably not be a solution for you! I feel for ya!
