I’m turning to you with the following problem: My situation has become unbearable ever since a dowel crown was implanted in my left lower jaw. After first, I only felt pain at the site of the new tooth, but it has now progressed towards the neighboring or opposite teeth and extends to the ear. On some days, it feels as if the artificial tooth is too large or too tall. My intuition tells me that this implant must be taken out; at least it would be less painful this way. I would prefer any cavity to this constant pain. But is it possible to simply remove the dowel and, most of all, will it be better afterwards? Also, I keep getting food scraps stuck in the gaps between my teeth. Because these can only be removed with an oral douche, this means that I have to carry around an oral douche all the time or I can’t eat anything! The physician took an x-ray and cut the tooth a bit upon my request. However, according to him, he doesn’t see any problem with the root. Nevertheless, after a few weeks of relief, it is now as bad as it was before. Please tell me whether this foreign object can be removed and whether the seemingly irritated trigeminal nerve will calm down.

Kind regards,
