My #2 had a root canal, and got infected, apparently from a cracked root. I had #2 Removed, and now #3 has gone bad. and I have had a root canal, and ayear later, had #3 removed. I have gone back to my oral surgeon maybe 4 times. He does not seem to like to see me coming, maybe because he gets one fee for one tooth.
That is my fear that #4 is next. I had a feeling that #3 was going bad, but delayed making an appointment with the Endodontist to confrim the problem. I was hoping it would get better. I tried flossing more. I had previouly beleived that flossing more than once a day was a wast of tiem. Now the thinking in Dental Journals is that the more frequently you floss, the better your dental health.
I got a perscriiption for Clindamycin HCL, 150 MG 4 time a day, but have not started taking it. Once I start, I have to finish, according to may oral sugeon. My Oral surgeon said that there was no infection, so I did not actually need antibiotics.
I just wish I could trust the absolute certainty, and disdain, I heard in the voice of my experienced Oral Surgeon, that "There is no Infection!". Someone posted that Detnists are Liars.
I didn't think about precuations after surgery, and gave my wife oral sex the night of my first extraction attempt, but now I realize that was probably dumb. Germs in the mouth are probably not a good idea with a healing wound.
Have you tried the diagnostic ultasound of your jaw? What treatments are you trying? I don't understand what they mean when they say don't do a root canal, go to a wholistic dentist. What does the wholistic dentist do?
