Had root canal,Crown removal and filling done on tooth 19 and 20. 3 hour procedure- 2 years ago now- Since then I have the following: Dry mouth, sharp jawpain at times,very mild swelling lower lip left side under jawline,facail tingling. Ruled out infection and other things over the last 2 years. During the procedure the dental proped my mouth open with a brace before work. We had a hard time getting it in and very painful till I adjusted. After the work on the floor of my mouth I felt No gland or tissue-almost like it had moved. I worked with my tongue and finger to try to adjust and it flet like it came back a bit. QUESTION: could this deantl procedure casued trama and permanat damaget o a salivary gland?

My name is***** and I'll try to help you as best as I can. The dental procedure could not have caused damage to your salivary gland. But, it is possible the root canal can be failing. Usually, the type of discomfort you will feel is pressure at the end of the root or all the way down in your jaw. You can be mistaking this for floor of the mouth pain or jaw pain. I would have your dentist take an x-ray and do some tests on the area to see if this is the case. Dry mouth can be caused by many different things, the most frequent being medications.

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!!
