intense molar pain after wisdom teeth removed
About two weeks before I had my wisdom teeth removed, I went in and had a large cavity filled. The dentist said it wasn't bad enough to do a root canal, but he wanted to cap the tooth since he had to drill away a lot of it and he didn't want me to lose the filling. All was fine, no pain in that tooth, not even sensitivity. Then, a week ago I had my wisdom teeth removed. The capped tooth is now causing me extreme pain to the point I'm watching the clock so I know when I can take another pill to kill the pain before it even starts up again. I guess this tooth would be my first molar, and the one behind it (the one that would be next to my wisdom tooth) is also sore. Could this possibly just be due to fluid buildup or some other complication or is it possible that I need a root canal after all and it's just showing up now? Please help!
