Thank you Blarney.... I had a broken/lost filling repaired last week, I love my dentist (25 years going to him) but I had more pain after getting that done than I've ever had from a dental procedure before, including when he took out my wisdom teeth (in the office)... I can't work when taking anything stronger than Tylenol, and the antibiotics didn't change anything, so not an infection causing the problem. So get to go in this afternoon for either an extraction or root canal. At this point I don't care what he does as long as it quits!
Welcome to our little corner of the site! I'm too far away to help but there are quite a few folks in your neck of the woods, I'm sure someone will be able to give you some direction soon!
hope he can fix it, feel better
