In 2011 I saw a dentist and was told I had a small surface cavity in number 14. I had the filling done and the next day I was in a lot of pain. The dentist filed it down but the pain continued. I went to another dentist for a second opinion and she took out the filling and placed a new one. Still the pain continued. She then said i needed a root canal. When I saw the specialist for that, he did the root canal in both 14 and 15. The pain continues. The x rays have been checked by a few dentists for “root left behind,” and all say it looks fine, it’s been shaved down but still issues. It doesn’t hurt to eat on it. But it hurts after eating, or laying on a pillow on that side of my face, etc. not sensitive to hot or cold. It lingering pain can last for hours at a time..

Flash forward 8 years. I have had some fillings over that time but they all are okay. Now I recently had filling on the other side of my mouth. I have what seems like the same exact pain. Hurts after eating. Can take hours for pain to go away.

I have spent $1000s on dentist guessing and I just want this solved, especially since now the other side hurts as well?

I have the same thing. Mine hurts after eating and can last for hours. I am wondering if I have a cracked tooth but I had a 3d xray that did not show cracks. I was told they have about an 89% chance of showing root fracture. I am beside myself. One thing I did come up with is atypical odontalgia which is basically unexplained pain after dental work. Apparently meds can help calm the nerve endings.
