Hi Deb, Hi Cat,
Deb you remember me from my bite problems from the 9 fillings I had done. Is your bridge feeling better now at least but you need more root canals???
Well, the prosthodontist did the occlusal adjustment like 2 months ago and guess what -- THe bite is still off, not only were the fillings high still in some spots(which he shaved down), too much tooth structure was removed in other parts of the teeth. I have very little top and bottom grip to my teeth. I need to have 2 molars "built up more" to get the support. I am waiting till next year though -- see how I feel.
Cat, with me and my high filling in one tooth, I had it shaved down I don't know how many times(4), refilled twice(with 2 different dentists in addition to the original quack that did the procedure) and guess what it still isn't right(currently I need to have more filling material added??).
TO make a long story short, I had all sorts of wierd sensations from the high fillings -- dizziness, facial twitching/sensations, jaw discomfort. WIth you I hope it just being one tooth they can adjust it properly, but in my case it has been like rocket scientry trying to get a filling to fit correctly????!!!!!My jaw is still off, I suffer from weird facial sensations daily.
