      Default my back molar is throbbing why??

      I have a back molar that has a filling, it is neighbor to a wisdom tooth that was impacted and removed feb 2010. I also use it as an anchor for my temporary partial. I am not sure why it is hurting so much? Is it shifting cuz of the impacted molar that was removed a year ago? or is it not happy being used as an anchor? or is it the filling leaking? The pain is the following: It started yesterday I was bending to get something from ground and I noticed a pulsating feeling under the tooth, then today I wore my temporary ok , then right now nite time now it started feeling like throbbing, and pain like when I press on the gum/jaw part. Kinda radiates up my cheek? I was hoping it was just not happy about the temporay cuz it was hurting when I first got the temporary? What u all think?

      Try leaving it alone as much as possible. I think you should have it looked at, book a dentist appointment as soon as possible. If the throbbing is bothering you when you lie down to sleep, some ibuprofen or other NSAID will help, but always read the label and don't take it if you have any contraindications.

      Try not to worry so much, it could be something that's easy to fix.

      maybe an abscess brewing under there- throbbing ususally indicates pressure of some sort.

      RP is right could be the start of an abscess or at least an irreversible pulpitits. See your dentist very soon.

      Thanks guys for the support I really need it bad! I had to make a small ice bag for my jaw My rt side of mouth/jaw is not happy.. I stopped wearing my temporary today to see if pain lessens and it didnt I even tried no aleve without the temporary to see if its something worse like absess/ infection etc. I am so frustrated with my mouth. I am waiting first thing monday morning for an appointment I hope my dentist can squeeze me in if not OMG I dont know what The thing that is on my mind is that oct 17th I was going to have my implant (2 posts) in lower front (plate of 4 teeth) Well now I dont know wats going on with this new problem. I thought and prayed it was just the temporary not the actual tooth (more money, more pain) Help need more advice

      Default Molar throbbing going to dentist today

      Hello everyone. I suffered all weekend with throbbing starting on thursday. My back rt molar is hurting its the only one I have left back there. I use it as an anchor for my temporary and I really dont want to lose it. It also has a filling and was traumatized during a visit to a general dentists that I stupiditly went to instead of an oral surgeon. (this was jan 2010) That dentist removed a neighboring impacted tooth behind it and left part of the root in that was really close my nerve and to this molar that is throbbing presently. I even had numbness in my lower jaw for 3 months after. I am going today and I am concerned firstly what is causing so much pain all of a sudden that is radiating up and down my jaw and behind it , hurts when I push on it and this morning having trouble opening my mouth? I have been wearing this temporary since feb 2011. I do take it off at home and then place on after so many hours, I cant put it on rt now due to throbbing and pressure and pain. I want to know what other kinds of temporaries can I wear that wont bother that back molar if it isnt abcessed or filling gone bad? What do you guys think of all this? And then also oct 17th I was suppose to have two implant posts placed in my front bottom anterior ?? So I will need this to be settled?

      Default Forgot to ask about endodontist

      If it turns out that I need root canal or my pulp is bad should I have my general dentist do the work or get a referral to an endodontist?
