Hi everyone, I have recently had a root canal tooth removed due to pain and after reading on the internet I realized it must have been infected eventhough all dentists say it looks fine. Sure enough I was right because after it was removed the pain running down my neck disappeared. This was done by a biological dentist who took off a piece of the jawbone and ozonated the spot afterwards.
What is bothering me now is that the tooth behind it now occasionally has pain. It had mercury filling before but was already replaced with composite filling over 10 years ago.
Since neither of these show up on x-rays, could it be I have a jawbone infection? I also have Lyme Disease and mercury poisoning (from that Amalgam root canal).
When they injected anaesthetics to remove the root canal, there was a lot of pain where they injected it, much more than when they injected into my upper tooth which was also removed shortly after due to a big cavity which went to the root. Is this an indicator of jawbone infection? If so what is the treatment and can you recommend someone in Toronto, Canada?
