I had a root canal process--during which my face and some portion of my neck filled with air and my eyes, nose and throat were affected. What caused this to happen? ...Visitor from OH
I am wondering if it was air that filled the neck and eye region and how soon after the procedure it occured. If it was immediately after or during the procedure then it may have come from the air syringe blowing compressed air into the canal of the tooth and down into the fascia layers of the muscles.
If it occurred later then it could be gas which is released during the process of tissue necrosis. In that case the tissues in the region are dying. I recommend seeking medical attention for either of these
