pain relief after tooth extraction

Harrow woman in £17000 dental settlement

After the filling was placed she began having toothache.

She said: “The filling did feel uncomfortable. I began to experience toothache. But I just assumed it was the filling settling in.”

By 2013, however, the problem had become more sever. This time, Dr Amerikanos performed a root canal and provided a crown.

“But the crown looked strange. I started to become self-conscious. It just wasn’t me when I looked in the mirror. And the toothache just continued to the point where I was having sleepless nights.”
