Electric shock from my route canal

by Tony Burgum

Can I be getting an Electric shock from my route canal filling and bridged false tooth?

2 weeks ago my left canine snapped clean off at the gum line. I was acting as the fixed half of a bridge to my false tooth. My dentist has done a route canal and fitted a post and refited the crown that was in place. It was fine for 2 weeks with no pain at all. After 2 weeks it started to cause some discomfort, now it is constant pain. I have tried antibiotics for 3 days, Paracetamol and now Dihydrocodeine for the pain. I am not a dentist but an Electrician. This may seem a daft question but i can hear when I am about to get a sharp pain as it makes a sort of 'Squelch' or an electrical discharge noise like that of a spark that you may get when pushing a shopping trolley. A battery works when you get 2 dissimilar metals separated by a conductive solution, similarly an electrical capacitor is a metal an insulator and another metal. If you take my tooth for example you have a metallic post, an insulator (The cement) and a metal backed bridgeed tooth. Am i being stupid or am I experiencing 'electric shocks'

Reply soon as this is agony.

Thanks

Tony

Pain After Extraction

by Joe Bartlett

Persistant Gum Pain After Extraction Before Implant:

I had a tooth removed about 18 months ago, and I have had such persistant medium level pain that I am reluctant to have an implant. I do not believe there is an infection. When I have the tooth extracted, it was rough going, and a later x-ray showed the jawbone around the socket is very jagged. I asked about this, since I feel my pain is primarily along the outside perimeter (which is jagged) and was told that the common practice is to leave as much structure as possible and not smooth out these rough edges.

My personal (uneducated) diagnosis is that I should have the bone smoothed out before putting in an implant. Any thoughts?

Implant Pain

by Barbara
(Katy, Texas USA)

I got my implant put in in April, it is now July. I had constant implant pain in the gum and the tissue around the implant was tender.

I went back to my dentist and they did an occlusion (sp?) but that same day the same type of pain was still there. Several trips back and each and every time I kept saying what about the healing cap, well they finally took it off and yes there was an infection under there. They cleaned it up and put on a new cap. I am concerned that when the crown goes on and I get this same type of pain what are my options. I want the whole thing out, but he keeps assuring me all will be ok. I'm an anxious mess!!
