I am new here, but have read through so many pages of posts.
I would like to ask a question-
I had 8 venners done on my upper front teeth 3 weeks ago.
One week into it I had extreem pain in my front right eye tooth.
My dentist went out of town for 2 weeks after ( the day after ) my veneers were dilivered to me.
Long story short- I now know it was a absess in my tooth that finally exploded... lovely huh?
I went to endo yesterday finally after going back 3 times to my dentist telling him the pain was unbearable, nothing I could do 2 vicodine didnt even help with the pain. Any type of heat would drop me to my knees ext... the only relife was keeping very cold water in my mouth. He kept filing the back of that tooth down telling me it was the new veneer making contact with my teeth on the bottom. He did exray me and said he saw nothing?
The pain was throbbing!
I am now on 10 days of pennisilin ( spelling ) and have scheuled a rootcanal this comming monday. I hope the resteration ( my new veneer ) doesnt have to be yanked off and need a crown?
They still cant tell me yes or no on that one. Funny thing is when the Endo did the exray, Massive amounts of grey looking matter showed up all over the root tip of that eye tooth all around my nostril area- Really amazes me that my destist didnt see this?!?! In his exrays.
My big question is...
What happends to all the puss that is in my face? My cheek has swelled so much, cant even touch it.. lay on it ect. He did an dry ice test on the tooth also, and have now found out its dead.
Will the antibotic really be able to get all the infection and swelling to stop? I cant believed I survied the last several weeks. The pain was so unbarable.
Will this tooth turn brown even after the root canal?
Please if you can help me, I would appreciate it very much.
btw, sorry for the spelling typos
