I've got a dodgy upper molar with a broken filling that's been occassionally bothersome for a few months (it's being sorted next week).
Today it started to hurt, so I took some Nurofen, which has helped - but I can still feel some very sharp, electric shock type pains in it (a bit like when you chew on tinfoil).
What's caused this suddenly? I've never had dental pain like that before. Is it an abscess? Also, what can I do to settle it down? It's horrible.
Thanks for any advice.
