Okay first of all i know i may be freaking out about nothing, but i am worrier and anything that has to do with my teeth scares the poop outta me. I had a huge cavity in one of my back teeth, this tooth already ahd huge fillings all over so my dentist said i needed a crown and possible root canal. She said she would go for just a crown unless i felt pain while she was getting the decay off. I didn't feel any pain and i have a temp on now. I have had the temp for 8 days. The first 5 days were fine, about 3 days ago i started realizing some sensitivity when anything cold hit that tooth or if i sucked in cold air. It's not horrible but noticable for sure If i really suck in some air on it it hurts. My tooth dosent throb but it dosent feel great either. Plus i am focusing on it so that makes it worse. I am so farid i am gonna need a root canal and i will be so mad if i need one after i already went through all this. How will i know if it does need a root canal? Is this sensitivity normal? Will it go away? My jaw also feels kind of sore.
