I went for x rays and cleaning. The Dentist showed me x ray
I went for x rays and cleaning. The Dentist showed me x ray of my teeth and pointed out a "shadow" above a tooth I had a root canal in years ago. The shadow was not apparent during previous x rays 10 months previous. He said he needed to do a CT scan do determine whether this was a sinus infection or a tooth infection. I did the CT scan and he told me I had an infection in the bone above the root canal. He wants to pull the tooth, clear out the infection, and put a dental implant in its place. I recently had a severe inner ear infection (Rt ear - same side as infected bone) with blockage in my right ear. My ENT cleared the infection with antibotics and steroids, however, my ear is still feels full of fluid. The ENT says this will eventually clear up, however, I am in my third month and the ear is still blocked. My dentist theorizes that the infection in the bone above my root canal maybe causing my ear to be blocked. Sorry about long response. The surgery and implant is going to cost $3500. I have faith in my dentist but am thinking I may need a second opinion. … read more

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
