8 out 10 dentists

Today, after having toothaches for about two years, which persisted even after I had the crack in my tooth repaired, I went to a different dentist and it turns out that the actual culprit is a hole in the neighboring tooth, which has had years to grow, unnoticed under the edge of my gums. FML

Why didn't you just ask to have an Xray done, when the problems persisted, and waited for two years?

Surely after the doc failed to fix it the first time you'd go to another dentist right away. The FML is that your doc failed to fix it, but ydi for waiting 2 painful years before getting a second opinion.

YLS and YDI. Trust your gut instinct and always get a second opinion. An x-ray should have happened within the first week of recovery since there was no improvement. Follow-ups are usually cost-free too, since it's considered part of the initial appointment AND especially since it wasn't fixed!
