Well, it's been 3 days post molar #37 extraction and my swelling and pain has gone down quite a bit...But I still have RA. sigh...I had so much hope that I was one of the "lucky ones" who was misdiagnosed.
As you might remember, I had 2 root canals with crowns done on molars #37, #26 and 2 crowns put on molar #17 less than a month before my RA reared its ugly head. My oral surgeon was disgusted at the crappy work my dentist did and he has sent a report to my GP.
I should of got my bus driver to preform my dental work.....as I will have to have a gum graft on #17 and a bone graft on # 37 in the spring all because of my dentists negligence.
On tuesday I will be seeing my endodontist for molar #26. He has to "undo" the crapy root canal and attempt to "redo" it. He may have to extract it. Apparently my dentist "forgot" to fill a canal and it has been rotting in my head.... I am speachless and I will be taking all my reports to a lawyer.
I have learned a horrible lesson.... when your dentist says you need a root canal please ask for a referral to an endodontist. Just because your dentist bought the tools to preform a root canal does not mean she iknows how to use them.... I mean I own a hammer, but I do not have the credentials to renovate your house!!!
