Help! I had a root canal on a bottom molar about two years ago. One year ago, I had terrible toothache with excruciating jaw and ear pain. My dentist redid my root canal and my crown. He said he needed to go further down the canals. My insurance company paid him again.
Yesterday afternoon I got another terrible toothache in the same tooth with the same excruciating jaw and ear pain. How is this possible?
Once again, it's a holiday weekend and my dentist can't see me until Monday but I don't trust him anymore anyway. I saw my family physician sat a.m. And he prescribed percoset, ibuprofen and clindamycin. I am allergic to penicillin.
My tooth hurts more than when I broke my leg even with the medication and I g ave birth twice with no drugs!
What should I do. Do I need an endodontist or oral surgeon. How cani get treatment asap? I am desperate!
My dentist of four years who performed both procedures and others can't see me until Monday.
