My dentist is took x-rays and did his check list to on me to and didn't see any sign of infection. Fixed bite, he saw no signs at all of anything wrong. - but I'm still getting an on and off dull ache in my teeth surrounding a tooth I had root canaled a year ago. I'm sure it changes from person to person, but if it is infected, do these things usually escolate quickly? He's taking the 'wait and see' approach but I'm just obsessing over it. When will I know if I'm in the clear? It's not that painful at all, just a dull pressure/ache. But I'm worrying so much over it I'm considering having him knock me out and extract it just so I can live again.
