Filling

After my back tooth started paining too much, I went to one of my local dentists to get sorted - It's now started hurting more than it did before having it filled!

The tooth is pretty much half missing, but the dentist said he could save it. Should I be brave, ignore his advice and have it taken out when I go back to get it sorted AGAIN?

If it was me and its a back tooth,then I probably just have it out.Then its out and then you have no more problems with it,can't stand going myself plus the dentist here struck off my 6 yr boy! so now we go to another which is now out of town cos not giving him mine or my daughters business,so yeh don't get me started with dentists.

My brother went to a dentist with a painful back tooth. Dentist said he had an absess and it needed draining. Came home and was in a LOT of pain, went to emergency dentist who said that the previous dentist had filled the tooth so the absess had nowhere to drain!!!!!

Stupid dentist!

I would suggest getting it checked out

The image of my tooth being pulled out isn't a nice one. :-(

Since it still hurts when anything watery goes near it, I'm assuming he hasn't filled it properly. But, since it's just generally hurting when nothing goes near it, I think the tooth is just beyond saving.

Still can't believe the dentist missed the hole on my top top left (other side) on my original check up...

I'm not that cruel these days, I'm a new man - I only bully her with my electric shaver. :thumbsup:

Anyone happen to know of dentist who speaks clear English in Walsall? It would help if I could understand the dentist better.

Aion stop being a girl and just get it yanked out. Gimmie a pair of pliars and a bottle of vodka and I'll do it for ya!


Seriously get it out hun. even if its filled chances are your gonna need more work on it again in the future (root cannal ewwwwww) I got my second to back tooth out a few months ago. I'm terrifed of dentists (before having my son I was sadated to go amazing how childbirth puts things in perspective :giggle:)but it was over and done with and if I'm honest it hurt less than getting a deep filling afterwards. Next day I was fine and dandy. So just ask him to pull it out. Its cheaper too

Yep, Having a tooth out hurst less than a filling (although neither should hurt if they inject it properly, I wish!)

its generally the feelings once the injection wears off I don't like :giggle:

Think I had a tooth out when I was younger...the one that was right next to my half-missing tooth. The pulling and cracking noises didn't leave much to the imagination.

The injection didn't hurt when he did my filling, surprisingly. I remembered the injection hurting on my last visit to the dentist.

Talking of child birth, I can now relate - I suffered (what I imagine) to be very similar the other day on the toilet when taking a dum...erm, nevermind.

The more visits to the Dentist for me the better cos mine is a fit young lady..trouble is i never need treatment so it's just a five minute eyeball and out....nowt worse than tooth pain so get it sorted even if that results in extraction.

I used to work as a dental nurse.

I could be an infection or abcess in which case a course of antibiotics may help.

It may require root canal treament which can be very expensive, require a couple more visits and may not solve the problem as can still be sensitive after.

Cheapest and quickest option is to have an extraction. If you cant see it and won't miss it, then this is the easiest route.

You must of worked for one of the good Dentists because you haven't mentioned an obvious cause which is incomplete decay removal.

I was once in Aion's situation. I couldn't understand why my tooth hurt more after having a filling. I found another, better Dentist who took x-rays and on showing me, revealed the previous Dentist had filled a cavity without removing all of the decay.

I strongly suggest Aion seeks another, better Dentist.

True, I worked for a very expensive surgical clinic.

Although, when I moved a few years ago, i went to a different dentist who when I said that my root canal filling was sensitive (which is often just one of those things) she pointed out on the x-ray that there was decay and it needed re-doing at a huge cost. I hadn't told her that I had worked in a dentist for years and that there was nothing wrong with the x-ray. I said would leave it 6 months and see if it settled down, which it did. I'm afraid that like other professions, it is open to abuse as most people believe what they are told.:-(

Yes, I'm sure you did and I can appreciate why you didn't mention my possibility for Dion's problem. Expensive surgical clinics would soon lose customers if they didn't remove all the decay. I assume the vast majority would always get it right.

My Dentist (Private) is exceptional and by far the best I've found. All the work he has done for me has been to the highest standard and has a 100% success rate. However, financially he's the most painful as his fee is £150 per hour. Perhaps it is false economy for me not to visit him regularly but I'm quite fed up with paying such astronomical fees. I've been a patient of his for quite a few years but now long for an another, excellent Dentist who's fee is less. However, I fear I'll end up having to go through many more bad experiences with bad Dentists. :w00t:

There are so many people who can't afford to go the Dentist. Their fees are absurd. No wonder the UK population has such overall poor quality teeth. :x

There's nothing quite like severe tooth ache. Most would pay anything to be free of that pain and regret leaving it to the last moment. :-(

Since leaving my place of work, I now visit a local NHS dentist who is brilliant. They will never do any unnecessary work. There are some good ones out there.

In my case I could see the decay on the x-ray which was taken and shown to me their and then. The filling and decay was removed and the pain has never returned. :)

True, some Dentists as with so many other professionals do exploit customers! I'm certain my current Dentist has never said I needed something doing that was not necessary. Many of my previous Dentist's did and one of them was banned from practicing.

Based on a TV programme I saw last year, it is not necessary to visit a Dentist every 6 months. 12 month intervals are fine if you look after your teeth and brush them daily.

Despite my current Dentist's excellent work, his fees are too high. I also can't justify the absurd mark up that he and many other Dentists make when technicians are employed to make dentures for their patients. By chance, my Parents met the technician after making some dentures for my Mother. Unexpectedly, he openly disclosed the fact that hundreds of pounds are pasted on to the customer by the Dentist, which are way over what the Dentist paid him. I have a friend who's a Dental technician and confirms this profiteering. Every business needs to make a profit but 300% + mark-ups on this sort of money is an outrage because it's way out of line with most people's income. :x

I hope I'll find a brilliant local NHS dentist. The problem is so many have enough patients and are not taking on more! :-(

Sounds like you need to change dentist. It def. is best to take it out if its at the back, as i had a root canal for my back tooth and after a while it got sensitive and whenever i was under stress or overworked this tooth would cause me pain.

So I had it out and it took some getting use to but no one can see it and i dont suffer anymore. I went to a very good dentist and it didnt hurt a bit when he took it out. I would recommend him but he is in London Essex.

I have of course seen this first hand and was disgusted with how much the dentist charged and queried this on many occasions, especially when an elderly patient came out would be in obvious distress when faced with a large bill. Although nothing to do with me , I felt embarrassed. Although the dentist I worked for were very good at their job, I left mainly because of the above problem.
