I had a root canal Friday (we're Sunday) and the pain is worst than it ever was. I went in for 2 crowns end of Jan. Dentist did shaving of teeth + temp. crown. No pain with temp. 4 weeks later, went back for permanent crown. 2 days after, perm. crown chipped. Unable to chew on the crown side. Went back to have it removed 1½ week later. Was told I needed root canal. Temp. crown and no pain. I go in for the root canal hoping since the nerves will be gone, I won't feel anyting anymore. but that is not the case. Last night, while sleeping, twice the pain woke me up because I was biting so hard.
I don't knwo what to think anymore or what to do. Do I call my dentist, who is working on the crowns or the endodontist who worked on the root canal. I have a 3 yr old I cannot take with me at the dentist nor do I have a sitter who can watch him. Anybody else has dealt with something similar? Please tell me what you think! I'm going nuts!
