I had a root canal done to a back tooth a year ago. Three weeks ago
I had this same tooth pulled because of pain also had a dry socket. Now I am
having pain again to the teeth around it. I don't really know if it's coming from the top or bottom, my whole mouth hurts around where I had this tooth pulled. If I call my dentist he is going to think am crazy. I am a person who takes cake of her teeth and goes to the dentist once a year. Cathy in IA
Cathy, sounds to me like you may want to think about getting a second opinion. If you are going to the dentist on a regular basis you should not be having these problems. Have some new X-Rays taken and get some definitive answers about your teeth. Insist on accurate and complete evaluation.
