My daughter had x-rays done in April and they showed a few cavities. We had two cavities filled in June. A few weeks later we had to go back as her tooth was really hurting- the dentist filed down and smoothed the tooth. A few days later a blister formed above the tooth. I took her into the pediatrician and they said it was an ulcer and there was nothing anyone could do. About a week later the sore ruptured and i took her into the dentist. They had to pull the tooth because it was infected. Shouldn't the dentist have either seen it on the xray or when they filled it? I really feel they are to blame; or they did something wrong or didn't do something right when they filled it. Help?
