I dont know about anyone else but I think they are, i cant think of anything else that could be worse. In total I have gone through four, each lasted about 2 months before getting treatment on the tooth.
I have loss all trust and confidence with dentists now because of this every time I went complaining about the tooth they would just tell me its sensitive to hot and cold things. Anyone who had a abscess would agree that it is a painful experience and would be in a happy mood going to the dentist but can you imagine them telling you its just hot and cold food and you having to go home and still having the constant pain and wishing you where dead!!
Going to bed is the worse part! I went two weeks without sleep, my tooth and jaw was so sore i was forced to call the doctor on call about 2 in the morning and I had an injection in my ass and it still never took the pain away not even a bit!
I had a abscess in each of my front teeth and 2 of my back teeth. I broke the bottom half of my 2 front teeth when i was young and am having problems ever since.
It has caused so much emotional pain in my life.
So people make sure you brush her teeth properly and avoid having to get fillings because fillings cause abscess!
