    "This was my first appointment with Dr. Vatan. The work was more extensive than we had hoped although within the scope that Dr. Vatan had outlined as possible. As a result it took much longer than anticipated. Dr. Vatan never seemed rushed or agitated by the extra time it took. He continued to explain what was happening and why it was taking so long. The extra unscheduled time must have been very hard for the office to accommodate but no one complained or seemed hurried. At the end the appointment ran into my next meeting and I needed to hurry. The office was fantastically cooperative with getting me done as fast as possible without compromising care. For example, Monica had all the paperwork printed and ready to go. It was as good an experience as a four hour dental appointment can be."

It sounds like the nerve is infected and the tooth may require a root canal. Antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory medication, such as motrin, are needed to help control the swelling and pain. There is a slight chance that the pain and infection are from the gums, which may then just need a deep cleaning around the gums, and not a root canal. Good luck.
