  • Sensitivity upon touch, bite on tooth that root canal was performed on. Is this a normal symptom?

    You can skip to the asterisks below if you do not want to read my long intro!

    Hello! I got a root canal on Monday (upper molar) and my permanent filling will be done this upcoming Monday. I have been bothering the office of my general dentist with lots of questions and am trying to wait until Monday to ask anymore... so in the meantime I wanted to see if anyone who works in dental or has gotten a root canal can tell me if what I am experiencing is normal or not.

    I was told that the area would be sore for 7-10 days, and that I was to call immediately for any swelling or if a bump showed up above the tooth. I was also told not to eat anything solid on that side.

    *** Well... the problem is I can't even have anything soft on that side. Something as simple as bumping my tongue to that tooth, or the bottom tooth touching the surface of the root canaled tooth feels extremely sensitive, like biting down on aluminum foil. That is the best way I can explain the sensation. Sometimes when I am eating food a crumb will slip to the other side and I bite down on it and it hurts. It has been 4 days now since my root canal and I understand having the general soreness in the jaw or up in the gum area but on the actual surface of the tooth itself? The furthest point away from my root canals is where I am experiencing the pain.

    Really do not hope it is a fractured tooth but that is my fear. Can anyone make me feel better by saying that this is a normal thing I am experiencing? Please... lol

  • Question about Mac OS X version 10.5.8?

    Currently my Mac OS X is running on version 10.5.8. And I just not recently found out that apple is updating this version anymore. Also, I cannot receive updates from Google Chrome. I don't even know if I have Lion or Snow Leopard or whatever. I am trying to figure out what should I do next? What am I supposed to be updating to? And what do I need to go buy to get the current/newest version. I've looked up several answers but I can't seem to find a good one thats easy to understand. Please help as I know nothing about this updating stuff! Thank you so much!

  • Information on Becoming a Flight Attendant?

    Hello! I am 16 years old and Ive been wanted to become a flight attendant since I was 13 or so, and Im actually thinking this is WHAT I want to be. Every one tells me its stupid, and I wont make money, but I dont agree. I know they dont get paid as much, but thats alright.

    But my question is, to people who know about flight attendants, or people who have known/been one, how much do you make? And it only requires high school graduating right? And if you do go to college, would you make more? Also would you be able to pick which airline youd like to work with and wether you want to do domestic or international flights? Im planning to work for ANA or JAL, airlines in Japan.

    Please help out by answering any of those questions, it would help alot.

    Thank you very much!

  • Question about behind the wheel training?

    I finished my 32 hours of drivers education finally last Saturday, and I my first behind the wheel class is tomorrow evening. I don't have my permit yet, but in California is there a law where you cant go through behind the wheel unless you have your permit first? Even if an instructor is with you? I go to the DMV to go take my test to get my permit next month.

  • My retainer hurts SO badly taking it off, and putting it on.?

    I had a retainer since October? I think and about 3 weeks ago I broke it on accident and it was a wired one. I got a replacement but this time its a plastic one. And the material they used it SO hard it hurts to put on and take off! I know Ive only had it for 1 day but when I take it off its so tight it pushed my front teeth and it feels like a HUGE bruise. Is that ok? Or will it make my teeth loose or something? lol

  • About John Travolta, look at this.?

    I dont get it, ever since he's acted in Hairspray people everywhere have been calling him gay, and Im sick of it. John Travolta in my opinion is the BEST actor/singer/dancer in the whole wide world. Hes had a good career and more to come! He has a beautiful wife with two wonderful kids. I am a huge fan of John Travolta and every time I hear people making fun of him, makes me wanna cry! Hes kissed some guys, look, its a way of saying thanks when they are really happy. Or a goodbye or something. And I would definitely act a guy if I was offered 8 million.

    So let me hear your opinions!
