I had a severe toothache three weeks ago and I immediately went to the dentist. He said the decay was not that bad and I will not need a root canal. He just filled the cavity and the tooth crowned. When the numbing shot wore off, I was in pain. I woke up the next day with a swollen face. I went back to the dentist and he told me that I developed an infection and I now need a root canal. I was referred to an endodontist.
I went to see the on the same day. After the procedure, he told me that one of the canals was too curved and he could not completely clear it out. He asked me to go back to him regularly so he could monitor my healing progress and make sure all is well.
A week after the canal, I developed redness in my right eye. I used eye drops to clear it up. It became worse after a week and I decided to see an eye specialist. She said I have a cyst in my eye and she gave me an eye drop and told me the will eventually go away. Well, it did not. After three days, I begin to have stabbing pain behind my eye and throbbing pain in my right ear. What should I do now? Could this be related to the extraction I had three weeks ago? Does this have something to do with the canal that was not cleared completely? Has anyone experienced this? Please help me on what to do!
