Tooth ache

Postby metalclay » 22 Aug 2016 11:48

Hello, I'm suffering from a severe toothache for the past few weeks. I have a lingering pain after eating hot or cold foods and liquids. I also have a sharp pain when biting down on food. I consulted a dentist at Appleton dental in Whitby and he recommended to do a root canal treatment ( http://www.appletondental.ca/services/dental-procedures/root-canal-treatment/ ). But, I have heard that this treatment is very painful. Are there any alternative options? Will it last long?

If all you're concerned about is avoiding pain, take an anodyne. How about Vicodin? :roll:

mwa the pain is not THAT intense, people tend to exxagerate pain.

ofcourse it is not like a walk on the beach, but you'll get over it.
the pain you are currently experiencing is far worse compared to you dentists procedure.

Whitby? I use to live near there.
I got my wisdom teeth pulled in Brooklin just north of the 407 before that was even finished.
Good times!

Well, bad times, but great to get them out. They were rotting to the core and I was in pain for over a year. I still remember the worst pain of my life, chomping on a Peanut M&M, cracking my wisdom tooth. I could only describe it as alarm bells ringing in my head. Visiting a dentist, enduring the torture chair, was my only option. A little novocaine does the trick and just focus on the ceiling and forget about the fact that you are in a medieval torture chamber with sharp instruments everywhere, and you'll be fine.

Two years ago I started having severe pain in one of my molar teeth. I was examined by my dentist, and he referred me to a specialist for a root canal procedure.

I had to take an antibiotic for a week first, and unfortunately the pain pills I had were not strong enough, so that was a rough week of waiting. However, during the actual root canal work, the local anesthesia was totally effective, and I felt absolutely No pain. It was just weird hearing the sound of the drill excavating my tooth. After I went home, I only had to take one pain pill. I was amazed that the recovery was so easy, and I have not had any recurring problems with that tooth.

Don't forget the smell. It's kind of like burnt hair when you singe your eyebrows off while igniting a lighter-fluid-soaked barbecue.
Ah, and now my memories are coming back, and I remember the sound of the tooth cracking as the dentist slowly twisted a knob to jack that giant tusk out of my gums. He said it was bigger than most, and wondered if I wanted to keep it. I said yea, and with a look of revulsion he put it in a baggie and I took it home. I still have them in a box in the basement because... I'm awesome.

Still waiting on the Toothfairy now.
