Dental Root Canal Procedure

I had extreme pain in my upper left tooth pre molar I think that wouldn't go away so I went to the emergency dental hospital in the uk, they started off the root canal procedure and I felt fine after, the dentist used the cleaning liquid and then killed the nerve and put in a temporary filling. He told me to go to my regular dentist 2 weeks later to finish of the root canal process, when I went to my regular dentist I was completely fine for most of it until he started drilling a bit and then put in 3 injections (he used the injection but it was not a needle) of the cleaning liquid im not sure if it was bleach as I never asked. As soon as he did that I got extreme burning sensation on the left side of my head above my ear, and suddenly I could feel and taste the liquid he used in my throat and it burnt, and my nose and left eye started running. I had to sit up for a bit, but I carried on 3 mins later and got the root canal finished, the dentist cut around my tooth to prepare for the crown and he put a temporary filling around my tooth. When I went home that night the burning headache never went, and I started to feel ill, I started spitting out loads of liquid from my mouth that tasted like the solution he used, it took 1 day for symptoms to settle down but ever since then I have been getting a runny yellow nose in the left nostril only when I bend over and my nose feels weird and brown when I breath in through it. I have also started to get tingling sensations in my left cheekbone and some burning but not that often, it has been 6 days since the root canal and I have a dentist appointment in 3 days to put the crown on.   what should I be doing, I have seen the doctor and he was not to concerned, would this heal up by itself, or do I need medication or even surgery, I was not given any antibiotics or any medicine by the dentist.

You may go for smile designing where we do intentional root canal treatment plus crowns or veneers to improve the shape and size of the teeth, see an experienced dentist in person.

Hello, you can visit your dentist now as enough days would have helped in the healing of extraction socket. Implants are advisable as no natural tooth is involved in this procedure and it will be like a natural tooth after getting the implant done. If you are choosing for fixed bridge then to replace 3 missing teeth your adjacent 4 teeth will be used as a support of the bridge and those four teeth will require root canal treatment and then a 7 unit fixed bridge will be given. Both the options are good you can discuss the price factor with your nearby dentist as it differs from place to place and than take the decision accordingly. Thanks.

Is dental filling is painful? How many teeth do we fill at the time? Please suggest to me.

Is dental filling is painful? How many teeth do we fill at the time? Please suggest to me.
Its not at all painfull. All the teeth requiring filling can be filled at the same time if you are comfortable to open your mouth for that long & if the dentist can do that. Otherwise no harm in multiple sittings also.

Is root canal treatment safe? Does any side effect? Or shall I removed my teeth instead of root canal?

Is root canal treatment safe? Does any side effect? Or shall I removed my teeth instead of root canal?
Hi lybrate-user, good to hear that you are aware enough & well informed regarding the treatment plan, as far as dentistry is concerned we should always opt an option which gives a route towards a conservative plan of treatment which clearly shows while going for rct you will be having your asset safe and could be long-lasting. Being a dental surgeon I reckon that you should try your level best to retain your tooth first & opt alternative plan of removal in case of no option left with your family dentist.

Hello lybrate-user. Yes, it is safe to go for rct. But it is not a permanent solution. And other teeth can get affected. Better take homoeopathic treatment side by side to stop further progress. You can consult me at Lybrate. Till then take merc sol 30.

veneering and placing crown can be done but if without root canal , you might later get secondary decay in the same teeth or sensitivity .
