Question:
I have recently had a problem with my tooth. It did not hurt, but food was getting into it, so I went to the dentist hoping to get a filling. The doctor drilled a hole in my tooth and said that I had pulpitis and that the nerve should be removed and the root canals should be cleaned. He put arsenic in it to kill the nerve and told me to come again in a few days. But the tooth started to hurt. I came to that doctor the second time and he took the arsenic out, put a temporarily filling in the tooth and told me to come again in 3 days. For whatever reason, I decided to switch doctors and went to a different doctor. The second doctor examined my tooth, did an X-ray and said that I may have an inflammation of the alveolus of the tooth and he may have to remove the tooth. He cleaned the root canals, out a temporay filling in the tooth and asked me to come again in 5 days. He said the pain may gradually decrease and disappear altogether by the end of these 5 days, and if it doesn't, he will remove the tooth. I don't want to have this tooth pulled out. What other options do I have? Should I take antibiotics to treat the inflammation? I've started to take Ampioxum. How much does a consultation cost in your clinic?

Answer:
Dear AV, by what you describe I doubt that you have to loose the tooth, I even doubt that the pain is from the Alveole but from the still -perhaps partly- remaining nerv. In order to be sure I would have to see the x-ray and check on the tooth. So, if it doesn't improve and the pain is still going to be there, before you have the tooth extracted, please come and let me check it! A consultation costs 35,-US $, including dental examination and written Treatmentplan!
