Bad teeth and bad symptoms
Hi all I just need a bit of advice.
About ten years ago (when I was 24) I had the top front 6 teeth crowned.
A year ago I was having them replaced as they were rotting underneath.
My dentist removed the old crowns (the smell was awful) 2 of them broke off so he root canalled them and in the root canal he fitted plastic posts and plastic teeth, the other 4 teeth got temp plastic covers.
I was supposed to go back a year ago and get 2 implants and 6 porcelain crowns but unfortunately my husband lost his job and our dental insurance.
In this past year the plastic posts have fallen out, and I know I have food and bacteria in those root canals as I can taste it if I suck them (they are just roots right at the gum line with root canal holes in them.
The rest of the plastic temps have fallen off and I am left now with 6 black stumps (roots)
I know I will now need dentures on the top as they have gone too far now....
Heres where I need advice over the past three months (mainly since the bad taste in my mouth has started) I have had weird mood swings, terrible diarrhea every day, bad headaches, jaw pain, fatigue, hot and cold sweats and the scariest chest pain (shooting pain) ( I am also a pack a day smoker)
I know I have to see a dr and eventually a dentist, but I was wondering if anyone thought those symptoms I have could be from my teeth???
I dont think I have an abcess at the moment well not one that I can see anyway.
I'd appreciate anyones comments and help
