My teeth are crying out in pain! 2-3 months post-amalgam removal

I don’t know what is happening! Because I am aware of my body and am well-read in the arena of holistic health and amalgam removal, my reasoning is that this outrageous tooth pain could be due to eating a lot more sugar lately than I normally have (see my view on addiction– I’m addicted to sugar bad right now!). Sugar causes inflammation and decreases pain tolerance, so I guess that could be factoring in, but it’s almost unbelievable how much they hurt!

My molars that had amalgams removed are just THROBBING and PULSING in PAIN!

I took two advils and though they should be kicking in by now (probably took ’em 30 minutes ago!), the pain just got increasingly worse and worse. It is pure agony; I’ve pretty much never had anything hurt like this.

From reading, I know it’s normal to feel some pain after removal (and sometimes people even feel severe pain) but this is ridiculous. Is it because I had a cupcake earlier and then had hard green beans and chewy steak?

Are there certain foods that make your teeth hurt more with the composite filling? @#$% it hurts so bad. I am not a big pill-popper, but I am certainly going to take more painkiller. I also swished my mouth with echinacea.

It could possibly be infected. My one tooth especially. It hurts at least a few times a week. I just hope I’m not one of those people that is sensitive to the composite or something and will have continual problems because the way I feel right now I wish I had never even gotten them out!

    I was glad to find this post. I’ve been having pain for months too following amalgam removal/composite refilling, and have had to go back to the dentist three more times. They buffed the tooth down a bit and that seemed to help a little, but I am still in a lot of pain! Have you had any improvement?

    Hi, I just read your post on amalgam removal. I know it’s been over a year since you had them removed and wondered how you were doing now. How long did it take for the pain to subside? Did you do anything to help it along?

    Hey! I am indeed a year and a half out and almost 100% recovered. I occasionally get a very mild pain, but it’s so rare now. Definitely found that eating extreme temp foods or too chewy foods (like steak) and nuts at first were all tough and made it worse. I worked with my dentist and followed a detox health protocol. Nothing too crazy but I’m relatively young/healthy. I did a lot of charcoal and cilantro afterward. There’s mixed stuff on that (if you search online long enough you’ll find another side to everything tho!) but it seems to have worked for me. Definitely was in pain at first and the going back and shaving down really did help. I’d suggest don’t be afraid to contact your dentist and/or go in for follow up. Hope that all helps!

    It is helpful to know that yours did improve and I am holdung nto that hope. I just had 2 amalgams removed today and replaced with composite- the last teeth top and bottom left side. Tonight they are throbbing, sensitive, awful pain.

    Hi Julie, just saw your comment. Hopefully by now a month later you’re feeling a bit better. A couple years down the road and I’m happy to say I rarely get tooth pain and have only had to replace one filling!
