Do you experience any sensitivity to hot or cold temperature? I had experienced it when I had tooth decay. I too had suffered from fever and had consulted my family dentist Dr. Todd in Appleton Dental, Whitby. He removed the decayed portion of my tooth with a drill and filled with tooth colored fillings. If you have all these symptoms, it’s better to consult with another dentist. Update your status after consulting.
