I had lnap procedure in Jan. Sore ness around tooth 4
I had lnap procedure in Jan. Sore ness around tooth 4 subsided quite a bit but when I probe with my finger near the root as high as I can reach inside the gum I still have soreness and pain if I press hard. Is this a sign of infection? Will it get better in time or will the dentist want to do a root canal (no cavities) I don't want to have that traditional treatment done. The Doctor and hygentists use the phrase “we will try to save the tooth” making me think this is a possible recommendation coming up. Wondering if a switch to a biological dentist will be necessary. … read more

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

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!!
