I had an infection -root canal then an extraction upper right, the same again with the upper left.
Then the teeth next to them that were root filled in 2006, were infected around the root filling so one of them was also pulled. The other one will be pulled in 3 weeks.
So far I have had 4 teeth pulled within a year. 3 the past 6 months. Each time i have been in they have stated all the teeth are fine and within weeks i am back in and another one is biting the dust.
Also after an extraction a socket was infected, after antibiotics we assumed it had gone but there is still sensitive swelling and bits of bone coming out.
All my gums upper and lower right are swollen and i have tingly feelings that come and go all over my face. now they are saying a tooth next to the ones taken out might be infected from the top but it also might just be my anatomy, so they are going to leave it. also that my sinuses might be infected which can cause the pressure pains.
I am very fed up and depressed about it all, the amount of painkillers and antibiotics i have taken the past year is not healthy and the slightist nerv pain of feeling in a tooth, i feel the adrenallin in my whole body and the sheer panic.
I believe there is something going on that they are not seeing. As i do not understand how they can send me away saying all is fine and within weeks i am in, in an emergency in pain.
I am at an army dentist and have seen all 6 in the centre, I am debating to go private and pay silly amounts.
Any advice would be appreciated
PS. I do brush and floss
