| | Techies: Miniature Meat Hook Came Out of Mouth !
I have a tooth that allegedly needed a root canal 3 years ago. An endodontist did one. Now the tooth is VERY SLIGHTLY loose. It was said to have bone loss 25 years ago. The endo put an amalgam filling in it; I do not remember if it has a crown.
I was eating a steak and bit down on it and a piece of metal came out. Of the steak or tooth? It looks just like
a hook you use to hang a xmas tree ball but 1/4 the size.
Curved on each end. Is something like that used in dentistry or was it a hook in the meat? There is no pain but when I bit down on it the feeling was the same with it I've had for weeks--like when you bite on a loose tooth.
