Trip to the Dentist

I have had an awful time lately with severe jaw/ear pain. I called my dentist this morning and he was able to work me in today. He checked my joint for TMJ, checked inside for trauma, and had me do several bit pads. He said one of my molars had turned and was out of alignment. So, he buffed the rough spots and said that should do the trick. If not, he is sending me to a TMJ specialist in Anderson. Sure enough, it feels so much better tonight. I am hoping the soreness diasppears over the next day or so.

  1. Oh I hate going to the dentist. I have a terrible problem with a root canal that was done badly and will need surgical attention one day. Just thinking about it makes me cringe! My new dentist says we have to wait until it absolutely needs done as it is going to be a major operation. I feel for you and am so glad to hear that this seems to have done the job.
