Two days ago, I had a toothache and immediately went to the dentist. She said I needed a and had started with the treatment. After about an hour, she said she could not continue with the canal as the tooth was in a bad condition and would proceed with the extraction. As she was working on my tooth, I had seen several swabs covered in blood being changed every few seconds. She told me she was able to remove my tooth but roots were left in. Since I had a massive bleeding, she asked me to come back the next day.
When I went in yesterday, I was a little bit nervous. I told the dentist about it and asked if she could give me a numbing shot, which has a relaxing effect. After the injection (I don’t know what medication she used), I started to feel sickly and light headed. My body was shaking. My heart was pumping so fast. The dentist said I have possibly taken a reaction to the injection. She scheduled me again the next day and sent me on my way. I felt nervous the whole night and decided not to see the dentist today. What are the risks involved in leaving the roots in my gums? I felt pain but can manage it with the help of painkiller. I am scared to go back to the dentist to get the roots out. Can anyone please advise me? I would appreciate any help or advice. Thank you very much.
