I have a crown on a tooth that my dentist filled and accidentally drilled through the root of my tooth. I went to a specialist and he did a root canal and build up and repair with fair prognosis in 2006. A week ago the crown fell off. I haven't been able to re-cement because I am out of town and the temporary cement wouldn't hold it. I am now having severe joint pain and they are red and swollen in my hands, shoulders and knees. Could this be a sign that an infection is going on? I have an appt. with dentist in 3 days.
