My filling filling fell out I would say two months ago. It's really only 1/2 of the filling. I didn't want to go see my dentist until I finished paying off a huge bill that I owed him AND it didn't bother me. when it happened, I figured I go sooner than later and would just wait it out.
Food was constantly getting stuck inside it. I would use a toothpick to pull it out. Now, last month it started to hurt a bit. A dull ache that spread around my whole jaw line. Now then pain severe enough to make me take tylenol and is on my top teeth too? Or am I imagining it? Could I have done serious damage by putting off going to get it re-filled. COuld I have reuined my gums?
I have satisfied my account now and am going to call him up for a look see. I always think that any ache or sicknesses I have is the one to kill me.....I guess you could call me a hypocondriact (??? I know I didn't spell that correctly).
Any advise? What do you think?
