I had a tooth that was not bothering me but the dentist at the time said I should replace the filling and eventually get a crown. After the filling the tooth hurt so I went back and the dentist said I need a root canal on the tooth. He said I could wait it out, so I did for about 2 months. The infection spread through my body. After antibiotics I got a root canal and it failed. I had the tooth extracted. Then the tooth just above it started up and I got a root canal right away. Last night I got very sick and tasted a horrible drainage from it. I was supposed to have the root canal finished today and the dentist said he couldn't find the 3rd root and dismissed me. He refunded my money and I had to insist on antibiotics from him. I have an appt. with a specialist tomorrow. I am worried that this problem might never end and might just keep spreading. I am also wondering if the first dentist did something to cause this. Also if this tooth gets pulled I will lose my perminate bridge but it would be better than to have infection spread through my body. Also tonight even with the antibiotic I am not feeling very well.
