For 20 years I had avoided root canals and was happy I did. I'd just have a deep filling then a crown on all my molars.
Last year I chipped a tooth near the front (top left) and got the worst stab of pain the next day while driving! Then it would just throb. It stopped but I Knew it would happen again so I went to an endo and had a RC. Afterwards the pain was minimal but my face was swollen for a week! I felt a "tingly" sensation on the cheek above the tooth on and off. NOw, months later, I have almost constant blurring in my left eye. It's not too bad; like a very light fog bank. Comes and goes.
Has ANYONE heard of bacteria from a RC'd tooth drifting to the eye? Since I DID go to an eye specialist and he said the eye was "fine" I bet I've discovered something. That there is a condition where bacteria drift to eyes and even to distant organs in root canaled teeth. I've read sev. times the case where this researcher removed a rc'd tooth from a person who got arthritis after a root canal and put it under the skin of a rabbit and the rabbit got arthritis almost immediately. I've read about people becoming sick in major organs after root canals. Anyone else heard of the blurred vision thing?

Never heard of the blurred vision but from things I have read it seems it could be possible. Are you going to keep your root canaled tooth or get rid of it? I have a problem one and have not decided yet. My tooth does not hurt but underneath it does in chin area. Probably bone infection. I been on antibotic's on and off for 18 months now and thinking maybe I should get rid of mine and be done with it but hate to lose a tooth but hate being upset over it all the time also......

Sherry, I cannot in good conscience have a tooth pulled because my eye is blurry. I have an eye appt monday morning but I am also going to do some research and try to "cure" this problem myself. I am not optimistic; this is a toughie. I have to give this a lot of thought and see what happens.
