  • Hi Todd! How soon after you had your teeth pulled that you started having the burning pain? There is something called RSD which usually shows up after some type of surgery-any kind of surgery-and it's very bad burning pain and usually in the area that your surgery was.Look up RSD and see if symptoms match yours-otherwise I would have to agree with your doc that it's trigeminal neuralgia.

  • Get a copy of your dental records and find out what they used for the root canal. If it is Sargenti N-2, RC-2B, RC-2W, do some research and then call a lawyer. Its not FDA approved, dentists who use it cover it up, and it causes problems like you mention. Don't ask your dentist...get your records and look for yourself.

  • I had root canal treatment and didn't feel well for months afterwards, then my face - around the chin area started to swell and the dentist told me the root canal treatment had caused a bad infection which had got into my facial bones. He gave me antibiotics and I'm fine now. No way would I have root canal again, just have the tooth pulled. Teeth are the cause of serious ill health - abcess, poisioning etc so get your dentist to give you a full oral x ray.
