I had a deep cleaning done about 2 weeks ago (entire mouth at once ouch). the procedure itself was a bit painful especially around the molars which had some 5's (spaces). After, was just mild pain that tylenol took care of. A little after a week I started eating a liitle more substantial food (went out for steak) and I think that was a mistake because it hurt like crazy for a few hours after that. Now, I have some sensitivity on right side by molars top and bottom which was the worst area. Feels more like it is at the gume line. Could this just be temporary because of the deep cleaning (maybe exposing more of the teeth) and the pero problems I had already? I go back in a couple weeks for my polish. I had to wait because they used arestin in those pockets as well. I am starting to panic and hope this is it because after a root canal, 3 cavities, and the deep cleaning I am broke!
Any other problems and the tooth/teeth have to come out because I can't afford anything else. I am only 38 and I really don't want to start down the path of loosing teeth but I wont have a choice. The pain from this sensitivity can be intense but it doesn't last long, maybe only a second or two. Any advice would be appreciated as I am really starting to panic because of the money and limited options left
