I first experience tootache in my upper right teeth on boxing day of last year (2011). I went to the emergency dentist. He diagnosed the problem as sinusitus and gave me antibiotics.

Two weeks later the problem hadnt gone away so I went to my usual dentist and he x-rayed the area and found a hairline crack in one of the teeth. He put a filling in there.

Everything was fine for 2 months until the same problem came back again (March 2012), I went back to the dentist he took the filling out and replaced it.

Everything was fine for a further 3 months until the same problem came back again (June 2012), I went back to the dentist and he couldnt see anything wrong with the filling again. Yet he spent an hour making sure the filling was perfect and replaced it again.

Then, this Sunday the same pain has re-apperared. I can no longer carry on like this. Surely he cant replace the filling for a third time?

I have used this dentist and do believe he is competant. Everytime I go I fell bad, like im wasting his time. But I am in pain and need to get it sorted.

Does anybody have any advice?

  • I had cranial neuropathy for several months one year (one of my cranial nerves in my face was inflamed, of which there are twelve). There was no reason for it. I went to the dentist, too.I was in nursing school at the time, and read about it in one of my books.

  • I had unexplained trigemnal neuralgia (there's 12 cranial nerves). It lasted about 6 months one year. Very painful...it felt like my upper face was burning. I too went to the dentist; there was nothing wrong.
