Finally got an extraction

Hi all. I have gone through some pretty painful procedures in the past 5 years. The latest tooth had been causing issues since May. I had 2 rct and still had pain and headaches so bad that my dentist sent me to a neurologist. I even went through pt for the headaches. I finally went to an oral surgeon this week. At first, he wanted me to see a periodontist bc the X-rays were clear. I had to dig my heels in but I got him to agree to extract. He was great and I am in minimal pain. Turns out the root tip was infected. I go back for a follow up and then for an implant in 3 months. The best thing is that the headaches have completely stopped since the extraction this morning. Please advocate for yourself when you are in pain. I am lucky to have found a new dentist and oral surgeon to repair any old issues that were caused by previous work.
