So i went to see the dentist yesturday for a meeting after i wrote a letter of complaint basically saying that every tooth ever touched by them has caused me nothing but problems, resulting in 3 rct and 2 extractions in the last 6 months, still 3 teeth they worked on hurt!!

He basically says he wants to rule out nuralgia and has referred me to Guys Hospital to get this checked out!

My argument is is that if was nuralgia surely all teeth would hurt and face too not just the teeth that have been filled by them.

Im considering getting copies of xrays before and after the fillings as i beleive they drilled too deep and upset the nerves. Probably grasping at straws but im hoping that this may be the proof i need.

Going to Guys would be a good idea as you would get an (unbiased) second opinion for free.
