I think over the years i have nearly read all the posts on this forum and have started to create thread but never got around to posting.
I have had chronic pain in my teeth for the past 5 years with a number of explainations. I have been to 5 different dentists and an orthadontist who wanted to do braces and jaw surgery as my bite has changed over these 3 years. I have had a lot of work done such as CEREC onlays and root canals
I recently got referred to an oral medicene pain specialist, after a number of xrays he showed me that in the teeth that have been giving me pain have calcified root canals and the roots have resorbed.
I'm in Australia so not sure of the numbering system there, but they are 15,16,17 and 25,26,27. Top left and right last 3 teeth
I have gotten to a point where i just cant take the pain anymore and it is really limiting my quality of life.
I have made an appointment to get these teeth extracted and bone grafts to reduce the loss of bone over time and possibly for implant supported bridges or partial in the future.
Teeth will be extracted in the chair and will be sectioned to make the extractions less traumatic.
I was a little nervouse going to the pain specialist and didnt ask enough questions, i would like to know why these teeth have calcified and resorbed?
I am 32 and these the teeth with the most calcification and resorbtion are out of occlusion, i also wear a canine guidance night splint as one theory of my pain was clentching.
Also what sort of post op pain can i expect for these extractions?
Thanks for any help
