Any good alternative dental books, sites, HELP? UpdatedSubmitted by fishyculture on Sat, 10/23/2010 - 23:00
Old amalgam filling fell out, got replaced with resin. The resin one hurt, all the time, never got better, they did a root canal. The whole tooth split in half and had to be removed a few months ago. Now I think I have a tooth trying to grow in, but it is growing in sideways under a good tooth. Now, I have just told you my dental adventures with just this ONE tooth, but they have just made a mess of my mouth and I DON'T want to go back to a dentist, but I don't know of any alternatives. Anybody?
UPDATE: THANK YOU!! Such good help, you guys are awesome! I spoke with the very kind and generous who replied below, and he has given me the direction I need. I do not say this to slow the discussion, some great info is getting posted here! But I want to let you know that I got the help I needed - THANK YOU ALL!!! And, also to say, the DP rocks!
Went to the dentist today. There were 2 small fragments of bone or tooth, one had already worked its way out, the other has stopped hurting. The "tooth" I though was emerging was the bony structure that once held the tooth that was removed in place. Chewing action has pushed it down and back, and now the ridge that once pointed at the roof of my mouth is pointed at my cheek, but it no longer hurts either.
