Hello and ty 4 taking the time to help me with some questions I have concerning my dental issues! However i have a few questions that have concerned me First of all is a permanet filling the same thing as a crown? Is a permanet filling just as good as a crown? Does chipped or cracked teeth due to bruxism and biting of ice eventually lead to a root canal? Why does my teeth hurt and feel very sore when ever i tap them or touch them with finger Does the feeling od cold temps on my tooth mean I have a bad tooth?? All of these things have been happening to me and Im just concerned that I may have to have dental procedures later due to all this ! Is it normal to have some of this stuff and it not necessarily mean i have to have procedures to correct my teeth? Thanks so much 4 your time and patience and reply to these questions!
