Re: Tooth pain....
Aug 5, 2007
Hello! I sympathize with you all and know exactly what you are going thru. I, myself, have had 8 root canals in the last 5 years, and one going bad so I had to extract it and get a post and porcelain tooth. My teeth just kept getting infected and the only thing we could do is give it a root canal. I have another one that we have been watching because it shows infection too but doesn't flair up all the time. And my tooth I had pulled still hurts sometimes and there is nothing there! I read somewhere that the lyme likes to get into your mouth and causes infections in your teeth and gums. This article said that there were alot of unecessary root canals because of it, but that is the only way to get rid of the pain and infection. What else can you do?? I have always taken care of my teeth, never had to wear braces, etc. and then when I got lyme my teeth just started wasting away! It has been soooo expensive! The pain gets so bad that not even viacodin's can take the pain away. One time I went to the emergency room it hurt so bad, blew my blood pressure way up and I was a mess. Knock on wood, its been about 6 months and nothing has gone wrong with my teeth lately...I so need a break from it all... I should do more research on lyme/dental problems, but I couldn't seem to find alot on it before??? Anyways, just make sure you have a good dentist....I have the best, we are such good friends now....we see each other too often, it's ridiculous! I wish you all healthy teeth! :D
