Yes, the general dentist left a piece of the insturment in his tooth and sealed it up. We found this out after they referred him to an endodontist because he was still having pain. The endodontist is a great guy but he wants to do everything "politically correct" so to speak and he won't really say to much since it was done by another dentist. We called the original dentist and told them what they found and they said this happens all the time not to worry. Well to make a long, long story short. We are having a review board with our insurance look over the case because we have reason to believe they did a root canal on the wrong tooth to begin with. It should have been the tooth next to it which he has since had a root canal on and everything is fine now. I'm basically just trying to figure out what else the original dentist screwed up on. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks!
