I've been worrying about having two teeth out but I thought i could be ok getting a filling in one.. this led me to looking into fillings and learning about amalgam and being a little concerned because I have three already.
I have an appointment on Monday with a new dentist to access my two teeth I was told I need out, but I also have a tooth with an amalgam filling that hurts.. but I'm not sure if its pain spreading from my troubled tooth making it hurt or if there is actually a problem with it.
If there does happen to be a problem with it and they have to work on it now I'm scared of them drilling it to fix it..
But, I'm sure repairing alagaram fillings must be a fairly common thing and personally I've never known anyone says its made them ill? I've read some scary articles online though.
Hopefully the pain is just spreading from my problem tooth and its all ok and I'm worrying to much, I only got the filling two years ago.
