One of my upper teeth on the right side had a and the tooth hurt. My regular dentist took X-ray and said, there was no sign of infection. He referred me to a gum specialist.
I went to the gum specialist the next day. After checking on me, she said I needed a gum graft. I had it done and was sent on my way. After a few days, I was still in pain. I went again to my regular dentist. He told me to get a root canal to stop the pain. He performed the but he stopped in the middle of the procedure saying that
the roots are complicated and he had to send me to an endodontist to finish it. I was sent home and had so much pain. I could not eat and sleep well. My face was swollen to the eye. The antibiotics and pain killers they gave me were not helping. I still have to wait for a few days to see the endodontist.
Two days ago, the pain was unbearable, I was really crying. They had to rush me to the ER. They flushed my tooth out and left it open. I was prescribed with Clindamycin 300 mg to be taken 4 times a day. Yesterday, I decided to see another dentist. He took X-ray and said there was no infection but he recommended to have the tooth pulled. I can't decide now. Should I still see the and finish the canal or have the tooth extracted? How come they couldn't see any sign of infection from the and yet I am in horrible pain? I'm confused now. Has anyone gone through anything similar? Please help!!! Thank you in advance.
