Thanks for your reply charlotte. I did end up going to the endodontist yesterday morning. I was concerned because my dentist had not prescribed antibiotics and the pain continued to get worse. The endodontist keeps "emergency" appointments open daily, so I was able to get in.
I ended up having a root canal (first one, not a fun experience!). The Dr. said it was very infected and opted to leave the hole in my tooth open for a few days, put me on antibiotics and have me return on Friday for the remainder of the "clean out". Yuck!!!! I was so disgusted. I'm still surprised that this even happened because I don't remember having any sort of injury to my mouth.
Anyway, the pain is gone. I just have this very wierd feeling with this hole in the back of my front tooth and I'm a bit nervous about it breaking now.
PS. I love being a soccermom too
