In more pain I went back and my usual dentist was on holiday and this other dentist saw me and did xrays and told me I have infection in my gums, it's worse in the lower right, but it's everywhere. He showed me xrays with "Pockets?" I looked this up and this is right?
But how? I clean my teeth regularly, I use mouth wash. And this would have to be going on a while right? During a recent pregnancy, I suffered a severe complication, and was on metranidazole (flagl) for 3 weeks (once I stopped taking I went into labour and lost my baby)!!! Surely this would have cleared this infection since I have just been prescribed metranidazole now by the dentist. This was only 4 months ago, how could it not have been cleared up by 3 weeks of antibiotics?
My don't bleed ever, but I do have bad tooth pain.
How could my dentist, and other dentists have missed this? I've been having tooth pain for AGES!
I'm sort of in shock a bit, especially as I work hard at keeping my teeth clean.
Also he says he is going to do a deep clean and scale next week, and I'm guessing this is going to hurt? Is it safe during pregnancy, because I "may" be pregnant by that point (bit early to know for sure).
Sorry for the long post!
