Unrelated: I have never heard of or believe there is any relationship between the extraction of a tooth and pain in your abdomen.

Severe tooth pain left side only, upper and lower. Reg xray, panoramic show nothing. Can an endodontist see anything different?

Perhaps: Being an endodontist, if i were presented with a patient with your symptoms, besides my regular testing, i would order a cone beam ct scan. This scan shows me a 3d view of the area, and often can reveal pathology not usually seen with the regular 2d xray radiographs. Also, the endodontist has experience in seeing patients with difficult diagnostic issues, so they may have seen similar patients. ...Read more

Food then rots, your body fights it an an infection follows. Get this check out. Either the impacted tooth is orthodontically erupted or it should be taken out. Not doing anything may lead to more infections and loss of the erupted teeth ...Read more

Tooth pain in several teeth from just heat and x-rays came out negative. I have deep fillings on one of my teeth. Do i need a root canal?

Tooth pain in several teeth from just heat and x-rays came out negative. I have deep fillings on one of my teeth. Do i need a root canal?
