About ten years ago I had root canals on my two back lower molars. About 4 years ago they each started going bad...ear pain, jaw pain etc. The endodontist redid the root canals but within a couple of months the same symptoms came back. I had the two teeth removed. Last year a lower molar on the other side needed to have a root canal. Within 9 months it had another infection and had to be pulled. A few months ago an upper bicuspid started killing me and I had to have a root canal. Within a week a bad infection started up in my cheek near my sinuses. The endodontist redid the root canal and I still had a bad infection even being on penicillin. I had that tooth removed too. I am now desparate because I am a relatively young woman (40) to be losing teeth. My dentist, endodontist, and oral surgeon have no explanation why this is happening. My gums are really healthy and my teeth look really nice. I now feel like another molar is going to go bad. I feel like I have this terrible infection going tooth to tooth in my mouth. Someone, please help!
