I recentlyhad a tooth filled ( front -- of course ) and lost a lump of another tooth and its filling . The problem is i suffer from severe tmj getting worse too it feels like. the filled tooth hurts ( possibly another root canal in the making ) n the mostly missing tooth they want to refil-- crown. Im seriously thinking ( especially with all the headaches/neckaches /jaw pain etc i have been getting lately that it mite be easier in the long run to have my teeth out one by one?? constant refilling /crowns etc means sittin there with my mouth open for hours which = strain on the jaw. I cant take this pain much longer thats for sure I need to be able to function.
Has anyone ( or does any one know of anyone ) whose got tmj n had thier teeth out ??
