    Hi everyone!
    So almost 4 years ago, I had a bunch of dental work done. (Extraction, multiple fillings, etc.) If I remember correctly, the dentist had said on one of my molars the decay was very deep, and that I might need a root canal however he chose to try to put a filling instead to see if it would work. I've never had anyone problems with it for the last 4 years. But now I have a throbbing toothache that will come and go on this tooth. I can't even push my tongue against the tooth without feeling the discomfort, it's very sensitive. I can't even chew on that side.
    I'm just wondering why now after all these years it's giving me problems? Will I most likely need a root canal?

    It could be cracked or bruised from poor alignment. Maybe you should see if you can have the filling replaced again. How long has it been hurting?
