Re: Bone Infection unlikely?
sorry no help. I've a infection- 3 abcesses in my bone too around the tooth roots and its calming down under antibitoics..14 days now of amoxycillin +Clav.
I am scheduled for a root canal but I still fell pain in my tooth..its under a crown with no holes, and whats worse is I didnt need the crown, I went in for an amalgam, replacement on a one sided hole, the tooth was fine.. the dentists just thought it was a strange shape and gave me a huge flat corwn on my upper molar (6 I think) instead. It doesnt fit so I think the jarring may have caused nerve death (too short on outside, stright on top of nerve, a cerec) and too long on inside. Now I have developed TMJ. I've had the crwon for 12 mths now, but m,y jaw was num for 6 mths due to an accident so it could have been infected all the time.
Just wondering if you got any better or found out anything?
You hekped me with your temps.they are identical to what mine have been since a few weeks after the acident. I think the poorly shaped crown staight on my nerve was whacked when my jaw was slammed shut.. andthis affected the pulp or nerve, but it is settling down with antibitoics..well the intensity has gone. I had the same temps you are talking of, but I thought the shaking was from shock for a few months, then put down strange temps to menopause, and I've been on pain killers as well most of the time so the aspirin, panaoddol etc kept the temp down.
I have been wondering what sort of temp one gets with infections inside the jaw bone.. npothing shows on the outside at all, no holes, cracks, nothing under CT scan or OPG, but the 3 darkened areas showed under tooth xrays..which I went to an endodontist to get after 3 dentists told me I'm fine..
anyways, how did you go?
