| | Anyone hear of molar roots grown into sinus?
Has anyone has ever heard of tooth roots growing up into the sinus's? The old x-rays I looked at sort of looks like it might be grown up there, but not sure, "Root grown into sinus" is what the dentist says it is. Thats why he won't pull it, but he did refer me to a Maxiliio Facial surgeon. I don't trust him [my dentist]that much... he should have seen this on months ago when we did the "full exam"...Twice I've had a "full exam", and they just try to do normal dental proceedures.
The pain is sooo bad, and has been going on for more than a month and the wait for the Maxillio guy is another 6 weeks....
I had planned to have all my teeth removed anyhow - the remaining ones - but this emergency showed up too soon. I am getting dentures, finally. I've been pressing for them for four years, and getting teeth pulled on an emergency basis throughout. [6 so far].
Its a crazy pain, from the left temple thru the left eye and along the nose into the roof of the mouth. The tooth itself doesn't hurt that much. It is so cruel - it comes on when I lay down. I am doing this typing at 2 am after one hour sleep, for the 5th night in a row, I am taking Gabapentin, an epileptic drug. Ugly situation.
It sure would explain a lot, and I probably have a few others like that, some of which WERE extracted.
What are the health problems - other than terrible pain - that would arise from tooth roots growing into the sinus's? [how to spell sinusus?]. i wonder if this is common, and they don't say much.
Has anyone been to a Maxillio-Facial surgeon? Is their main task the removal of teeth, in preparation for dentures? [thats what I am getting done]. Or do they just fart around and try to save desperately bad teeth like the regular dentists?
