Good day. So, I had my root canal about a month ago on my upper 1st premolar/bicuspid and it's not yet done. I have revisited the dentist a number of time due to my complicated long and curved canals. We meet once a week. I have two root canals in that tooth. One is cleaned and the other is not yet completely.
So the history is.. When the dentist made an root canal opening, she removed most of the tooth substance because my canals were in both far edges of the gums. And when she found the canals, she did a build-up for the lost tooth substance centering the root canal opening. And when the whole procedure is not done, she closes the opening with temporary filling.
Dumb for me to explain that since you know it. Anyway, but the point is less than 3 weeks ago, the build-up broke. The dentist told me that my eating pressured it. But not just that, together with the WHOLE build-up that broke away are the temporary filling and worse, some of my actual tooth substance too! Now, its not just that my root canals are fully open for swarming bacteria, but all I have left of my tooth substance are puny, like there's only 5% left! The dentist made me a build-up again saying that she hopes the build up would stick to my . But just as soon as she completed it, it fell off right away!
The dentist then made and alternative to close the opening. I don't know what it's called but, from the looks of it, its like white cement that hardens as the dentist carves it to close the opening. What is it?
Because last week, it started to cause pain. And when I touch the cement, the pain is more. When I brush it, the pain is just overwhelming. It's crazy.
Is the 'white cement' used in to close the opening to blame for? Or the 'white cement' stayed too long that it had side-effects and complications? If not the 'white cement', what is it that is causing the pain? Please answer me. Please. I really need an explanation because I'm so worried.
I have not yet revisited my dentist yet to continue the procedure because of the lack of money. I'm so stupid. :'(
