  1. I came across this video, trying to see what people use to get their non professional information from. I stayed for the comments :)
    It seems like people had tons of bad experience with their dentist, or he didn’t explain things clearly enough (I’ve seen that, first hand). Plus, patients just don’t ask questions without you stimulating them to do so.

  2. Have it replaced as soon as possible. The part of the tooth that held the filling catchs food easily and at the same time it’s harder to keep clean. It also leaves the tooth weakend.
    It’s heart breaking to see patients that say their filling fell off, or broke off weeks or months before they decided to do something about it, and the tooth is completely decayed and soft.
    Don’t relay on pain, having any or not at all. I’d recommend to take care of it quickly.

  3. It depends on the type of formulation the doctor will choose, but the standard, Lidocaine with 1:100000 adrenalne will keep the area numb for about 4 hours. If he works on upper teeth, particularly in the posterior area (the molars), you won’t really notice it take affect; it’s felt very locally. It’s a bit different for most upper teeth in the anterior area or the lower teeth, because the anesthesia usually affects the toothteeth in question, as well as areas unrelated to itthem.

  4. Of course, if prognosis is guarded, the dentist should ask you what do you want to achieve from your treatment. A conservative approch, that would usually cost less is an option, if the clinical situation allows it. If prognosis is poor, root canal treatment might be more appropriate. And also, don’t forget that most teeth that go through root canal treatment are inevitably weakend by said treatment and by the damage caused by bacteria, and a crown is required as well – a significant price jump.

  5. The pain he talks about can be caused by several things. Most importantly, it can be caused by the chronic irritation that the pulp had to endure from the bacteria that made you see a dentist to begin with. It’s hard to judge how the pulp will react to the treatment, and you need to “give it time” and see if things are ok. Usually we’re talking about a 3 months period. Treating deep cavities sounds mondain, but it quite complex, and never certain, but trying to save a tooth is a noble goal.

  6. I think he did it in an attempt to save the tooth from having root canal treatment. Deep caries (cavities) that extend close to the dental pulp (the nerve) contain bacteria that if left in place may cause irrevsible inflamation to the pulp, in which case root canal treatment is mandatory (or extraction, if you don’t desire a more conservative treatment).
    I can’t be sure about the prognosis of your tooth without hearing the exact history and examining the tooth and the radiographs, though.

  7. I had a tooth filled today and wanted to see how it was done. My dentist told me it might cause me more pain now and I might need a root canal? Why didn’t he just do that then???…!.
