I am so sorry that you have been through so much and now have to face all of these dental issues. I have lots of dental problems through the years and many over the last few months so I will try and help as much as I can.

Many dentists work in quadrants, so this is pretty common as long as there is nothing that needs immediate attention. The cleaning procedure will not hurt and if it is a deep cleaning then you can have novacaine for that. The same applies for cavities. Healings for both of those are very minimal. A root canal is also done with novacaine and will not be painful. There may be some discomfort afterwards, but not pain. Root canals are done very well now and with little or no discomfort.

It sounds like you have been through a lot and I do understand feeling like you need a break. You do have choices, so if there are teeth that really need to be fixed due to pain or infection then get those done. Let your dentist know what you have been through and that you would like to spread out some of the work. Many times they will be agreeable to that if they understand your situation.

I also understand about the nerves in your mouth being stirred up. My mouth is the same right now after months of dental work. My dentist told me today that this can happen and it can also happen if you are keeping your jaw tense or clenching. It can cause sensitivity to cold and also feeling like the nerves are revved up. He suggested using Colgate Maximum Strength for sensitive teeth. He said the PH in that is much better and will often help within a few weeks. He also prescribed Valium in a very low dose to take at night to relax my mouth and the nerves. I am not thrilled with that, but will try it as I am tired of dealing with all of this.

If I can answer any more questions for you or just lend moral support please let me know. You have been through so much. Try not to stress over teeth.
