Dentist wants to pull my teeth but..

I went to my dentist today, the one that pulls my teeth, & where my insurance covers that & x-rays because of the sensitivity & pain in my mouth.

I was able to stop most of the pain with orajel densitine but there is still this pain in the right side of my mouth by where my wisdom was pulled years ago, which is obv causing the neck pain & headaches. Can't get rid of this w/o OD'n on Ambien.

I have also been to another dentist, infact whom also took x-rays and fixed all of my cavities.

One of the teeth this dentist wants to pull is one I had a deep cavity in and just recently had fixed with the filling. The dentist that fixed it said if it ever started causing pain, that it would need pulled, she put in a perm filling yet was only going to put in a temporary one the begin with, why she changed her mind, don't know, but it did need a root canal.

The other tooth is the very back one where this pain is located that is killing me. This dentist said once the tooth is absessed, a filling won't necessary help.

So after the x-rays, he pounds on those two teeth to check for pain, the back one hurt much worse than the other, but I guarantee he could pound on alot of my teeth and get that awful feeling. However pounding on the back one, it did increase the already throbbing pain I had.

I do believe however that the choice to pull these teeth is strickly based on the fact that they at once had deep cavities and the symptoms I have.

What if I have them pulled and still have that pain. I don't think there is an absess now and know there is no cavity in them. And I seriously don't want anymore of my teeth taken out.

I seriously don't know what to do.

hard decision ,to make ,IMO if it was back teeth and it didnt effect my bite to eat .i would opt to have the tooth out !!
as if u continue to get abcess ,it will end up the tooth coming out now
so ,in mean time costing you more money to try to save it and eventually have to have it out

also if abceses bursts it can poinson your blood stream and can be very serious then
if it is a tooth that is important where u chew on it and cant chew on otherside of mouth i would try one more of anti biotics to make sure abcess has cleared and then try to save it

hope that helps????

Re: Dentist wants to pull my teeth but..

I was put on Keflux today but he said the tooth was once absessed, didn't say anything about it being absessed now. Neither did my other dentist mention such a problem.

I just don't think I can go through with it. Once your teeth are out, that's it. There's no getting them back. I have partials I'm getting in 2 wks for all the other teeth he pulled out on the left side. That will correct my bite, unless I let him take more of my teeth.

And not to mention the pain it causes. I always get dry socket because I can't stop smoking.

I took a metal tool and knocked on my teeth. All four on the right side hurt pretty bad when I do that, and there are a few other teeth elsewhere that also does.

I really don't believe that getting two of these teeth pulled is going to solve this problem, I figure all four would have to go. And all four of those teeth are exactly where it hurts when I drink water.

If it was just one back tooth, naaaa wouldn't care so much, but they want to pull two of them, and I just don't think it's going to matter when I have other sensitive teeth in my mouth able to still cause that pain.

Re: Dentist wants to pull my teeth but..

what i would try for a while is using sensative toothpaste,and cordysil mouthwash,use only alittle bit and only for aweek ,as it stains your teeth !!
then buy cordysil daily use it once in morning once at night

and inbetween gargle in warm salt water

see how you feel after couple weeks ,and see if it improves

then ask your dentist if it doesnt improve what other options have you got???

maybe deep cleansing might help your gums and teeth??

well good luck and let me know how you get on

pain i know what your going through been having tooth pain for 3 years now and cant get any hlep to sort it

i smoke too and get told to give up smoking ,yet they keep telling me nothing wrong with my gums and there not diseased or anything
and i need my cigerttes to calm my nerves bwcause of the pain lol

Re: Dentist wants to pull my teeth but..

I like you better than my dentist. LOL. He's not getting my teeth unless it's life & death. My doctor will have to try me with a stronger pain medication if all else fails but I WON'T have these pulled.

I bought sensodyne & I will try the other stuff + warm salt water and see how it goes.

I will just go back to my dentist FRIDAY and explain getting these teeth pulled would be like having all my hair cut off and unless there is an extremely good cause for it, it won't happen.

Cigarettes causes anxiety producing effects. Regular smokers find that cigarettes have a temporary calming effect, because smoking relieves our nicotine withdrawal symptoms. I prefer a beer for my nerves, it's better than a valium. LOL. But what you think may be helping you (cigs keeping your nerves calm) may have actually brought on the problem the begin with.

I don't really know the effects cigarettes have on your gums & teeth except for it staining your teeth but I'm sure nothing good can come from smoking.

It's a wonder anyone can even afford it after that price raise that just hit.

Thanks for helping. I really hope this works.

Re: Dentist wants to pull my teeth but..

I haven't been able to make it to the pharmacy yet (TIRED TODAY) but I tried the warm salt water & it actually relieved the pain I was having earlier after going to the dentist and getting my teeth pounded on.

I think there may be a way out of this without losing my teeth. Teeth shouldn't just be pulled because there is pain there. If there is actually an absess or something like that though, and nothing else could be done, I'd understand it, but I don't understand this at all.

Thanks again though for the advice. Hope your dental problems get better. 3 years must be a nightmare for ya. t/c

Re: Dentist wants to pull my teeth but..

hi glad the salt water helped ,some times that helps far better than any other teeth gargles as salt acts as a healer

well ,yes smoking cant be helping matters i do agree,and i also drink to take the pain away lol so i got both vises lol

nothing worse than teeth ears pain etc
well im like you i already got a denture with 3 at front and one at back on it ,all because of a dentist neglect
and more of my trouble is through dentist believe it or not !!

and my problems are now with my bottom teeth ,caused by another dentist ,my luck with butcher dentists
you cannot find a dentist now days thats not out for money

sorry not sure where you live ? maybe your dentist can refer you to a specialist or a dental hospital ,where they can hopefully help you with your problem?
a dental hospital is free

otherwise ask your dentist or doctor to refer you to a neurologist that deals with teeth pain?

thats what dental hospital has suggested to me and im waiting on that appointment which could be months away

but in mean time i am paying privately yet again ,to have a nerve thats playing me up out
in hope that solves one of my problems
which it will
and if tooth next to it still playing me up ,.i will ahve to pay again to have the crown taken off ,.and this time to investigate whats going on underneath
and then do a new crown and put it on properly as it should meet the gum at the bottom which mine doesnt
then in hope thats it no more pain or discomfort
i live in hope

like you i am petrified of having my bottom teeth out and having denture there as dentures not all that comfortable also
harder to get on with and i cry at times thinking about it
but i also cry with the pain at times and wished my teeth was pulled out ,but i know i would stress out if it did happened

i do realise in time it will come to that ,but i just want at least 10 years opr even 5 years of pain free and comfortable and get on with my life stress and pain free

im glad u like me ratrher than the dentist lol at least im free i mean the consultation wise lol

hopefully continue with gargling with salt water and it helps you

i will come back and see how your geting on

bye for now
tc

Can you use the trouble that smoking causes in your mouth as incentive to stop?

Smoking can change your saliva, which reduces its effectiveness against cavity-causing acids, meaning that your teeth are more likely to be damaged by cavities. It also harms the gum in various ways, potentially causing oral cancer. And smoking after dental surgery harms healing (and causes painful dry sockets after extractions). Not to mention all of the other ways that smoking hurts you (lung cancer, heart disease, etc.).
