My x-rays show that my right jaw is eroding away and is fragile like someone 40 years older than I am now. I'm afraid it will break and if it does, I've been warned that it will snap my nerves which control function and feeling in my face. I've also been warned that if I continue to have infections they could lead to a fatal brain infection. A few months ago a surgeon took out the top of my wisdom tooth and had to leave the roots since they are wrapped in nerves. I've been to many doctors/maxillofacial surgeons and no one can tell me why I have the infections in my face/jaw area. They can see that my jaw looks awful and say I will need a jaw replacement one day or when it breaks. What can I do to keep my jaw from breaking? What kind of doctor should I see? Does anyone have advice or an idea of why my jaw is infected non-stop? I'm am so scared and I can't get any advice or answers from the doctors. I have never been to so many doctors that could not tell me what to do. I need to find out why I have continuous infections and swelling. If you can help, please offer any advice that you can. I am sad and scared. Thank you.
I'm no doctor, but you seem to be in chronic toxicity from that jaw and tooth that some idiot left in your head for some unknown reason.
I can see why the dentist didn't take out the roots but...who knows? It just might have solved the problem even if some systems became permanent...like dead zone in your face. I have one courtesy of a careless dentist and it has slowly cleared up.
I'd suggest checking out nutrition and de-toxing first. You may/probably have a severe calcium deficiency. If you've been on lots of antibiotics your intestinal flora may well be completely gone and needs to be replaced with lots of acidophilus/probiotics. Take these before during and after antibiotics. Yogurt helps too, eat lots of it or put it in a smoothie. YUM! A doctor will seldom tell you to do this.
I'd say concentrate on those things along with plenty of Vit C and I mean PLENTY. 5 grams day (at least) from powder mixed with water. not only will this detoxify you it will help prevent more infection.
Make sure your bowels are moving well and get lots of fiber, this cleans the intestines of lots of nasties.
Calcium doesn't help permanent teeth but it should help your jaw rebuild itself if your can get the infections cleared up. Be patient with your body. give it what it needs and it'll take care of the rest, but it may take awhile.
Try to calm down. Stress is a killer too
