Since those teeth were killed i only get the pain back in that socket. I've had a panoramic xray done 3 times. None of the teeth he killed were abcess. And my jaw hurts all the time. They just say well you did have some nerve damage. Thanks for writing me back with some ideas.
Please keep me updated. It really does sound like a bone infection. BUT, I am not a doctor. Just someone who has had one. If you search these boards here for OSTEOMYELITIS, you will see some p osts. Also, check the archives here and do the same search. You may see the symptoms, etc. Normal results are part of this disease process. I recommend no more root canal treatments because that means an infected tooth and that means more bacteria for the jaw. Also do a search on *********** for OSTEOMYELITIS to check your symptoms. Root canals are certainly not the answer here. I see you are in Wisconsin. Perhaps there is a teaching hospital there that works with jawbone osteomyelitis? I will search for you as well, and post what I find if it meets with moderators approval,
Are you in pain now? what are they doing to treat the pain? Have you been on antibiotics?
Can you explain the pain? do the teeth hurt? does the jaw hurt? do you have a fever at all or higher than normal temperature?
