    I Have Had One For About Three Days Now....

    I have had a toothache for about three days now. It sure has hurt a lot, and its not comfortable  at all. I am not sure what is worst to deal with, a toothache or a earache, in my opinion they both hurt like hell, and there really isn't much you can do about it. I will be...

    It's More of a Sensitive Tooth

    I had to get a filling a few weeks ago and the filling I got was "tooth colored" instead of silver.  The dental office said that this kind of filling conducts temperature more than the silver, so now it's sensitive to hot and cold. Anyone else ever have this...

    Everyday Pain.

    I've had this toothache since I was young. I'm 26. My mom NEVER took me to see a dentist when I complained of a toothache because it wasn't as bad as it is now, but she took my brother when he did. For the past few weeks, I've had this nonstop toothache that has given me a...

    I Lost My Dental Insurance Then One Week Later Had To Have A Root Canal

    I worked at my job for eight years and then because of the recession I got laid off and of course lost both my health and dental insurance as a result. Any insurance I bought elsewhere would be cost prohibitive. For those eight years I never had a problem with my teeth, then one...

    I guess it's more of a gum ache.

    I've had toothaches and they feel the same. But my gum is like split open and trying to kill me I think. It was something I ate. I could have been anything hard or hard to chew. I mostly try to avoid such. That's the reason why I do. I have a small, sensitive mouth. I never knew...
