Help still in pain after 6week post oral surgery

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: lavinak  (3 years ago)
I have hypercementosis(mis spell) and had an extraction of number 4 tooth 6 weeks ago. I'm experience a lot of pain and the only thing that helps is my finger in place of the missing tooth. I've had two course of antibotics. The area has been checked twice and they thought I might need a root canal in tooth number 5. Specialist checked with no reaction to hot, cold and pressure so she prescribed oral rinse. I looked and the area is white but doctor said that it's healing. Another doctor said just by looking at the xray that tooth number 5 needed treatment. Help what is it?

Wait until you are in pain, then present at the dentist. Have him inject anesthetic over the root of #5. If the pain goes away, this tooth is causing the problem. If the pain remains, have him numb up over extraction site #4. If the pain still does not go away, it might be sinus problems or a neuroma. The area being white is not significant.
