If a root canal didn't fix the tooth, which literally removes the "root" or nerve ending from the tooth, and didn't stop the pain, removing your teeth might be the only viable option. I am not a dentist though. However, a lot of tooth pain is not actually caused by teeth. While on deployment, the entire right side of my body slammed into a windshield at 30 MPH. I found out when I got home, all the teeth on that side had fractured. All needed crowns, a lot had root canals. I have a smal

This sounds really weird OP, but have you ever had your sinuses checked up on? I have chronic sinusitis and because of all of the connected nerves, I normally get frequent tooth aches and nerve pain associated with teeth. I thought for a long time it was my teeth, but it's actually due to my sinuses being inflamed. I'm sorry you have found no relief in your pain. :( Try to think of things you wouldn't though! You'd be surprised that one visit to check your sinuses or anything else could help wit

Teeth, especially molars, can have tricky roots. It's sounds like the OPs dentist missed one. If the second root canal was performed because OPs mouth still hurt like hell after the first I bet the dentist missed a tiny branch from a "main" root during the first root canal. If the pain goes away with antibiotics, AND, not chewing on that side, that's a dead give away the dentist buggered up the root canal. While pulling the tooth is a viable option, it's lazy, it also means the dentist

I agree with the sinuses. when the springtime comes it feels like my teeth are going to fall out of my head and sometimes my gums are even swollen. they physically hurt to touch. as soon as I take my allergy medicine, it clears up. it gets so bad that if I don't take it, I'll get migraines and then seizures, it's completely unrelenting. definitely go to an ENT.

was it actually 2 root canals? some dentists do a root canal treatment in 2 sessions... depending on length of appointment and ease of procedure. root canals are typically approximately 1,000 each. also, had you just taken care of your teeth in the first place, you wouldnt need a root canal (this holds true for 9 out of 10 root canals).

Not true. "Taking care" of your teeth does not prevent a majority of root canals. A majority of root canals are from simply USING your teeth year after year. No amount of brushing, flossing, etc. will prevent them. Genetics (different mouth shape, different hardness of tooth enamel) play a larger part in the equation.

Wrong. As a dental hygienist I can tell you almost all root canal procedures are needed because people do not brush and floss, and then they get caries (cavities). They allow the cavities to worsen until the tooth is decayed to the point in which the root of the tooth has to be removed and then a crown is placed over the remaining enamel. The upper molars and premolars sometimes have root systems that penetrate into the sinus cavities, and like some posters have stated, tooth pain can actually b

@21, wear a mask. I can tell from the thumb prints that people with stupidia were here. As for the op, other people have said the long and short of what i would've, so instead im going to thank you for teaching me that smurf shit can be used as a curse.

While I am deeply sorry for your suffering, (I can only imagine how much pain the root canals caused,) I feel the need to admit that I can't stop laughing at your use of the term "smurf-shit."

I had tooth pain for years, until I increased my calcium intake. Even my dentist can't explain why it works but it's a night and day difference. It may not be the same fix for you, but I hope these comments will help you find an alternative treatment that helps you. There's a lot of non surgical options out there. Our bodies work in mysterious ways.

Not necessarily. Mineral deficiency can result in aches and pains. If calcium supplements fixed the problem, it was likely muscle pain manifesting in the teeth (which yes, can happen because nerves are strange things). OP might also try magnesium supplements. OP might also look into therapeutic massage for the face and shoulders. A surprising amount of my mouth and jaw pain (which one would expect to be caused by teeth) over the years has actually been excessive tension and/or nerve impingeme
