Pulling out an infected tooth?
belushiraf posted:
Greetings. I recently had a molar tooth pulled that was infected. It was very painful. The infection was serious enough that it affected the whole right side of my face. This pain that I felt was beyond anything I had experienced before except once. It was like a constant and continuous, unrelenting pain. This happened once before about two years ago, where I experiencing the same pain and severe discomfort. Knowing now that this tooth was infected prior to the actual removal of the tooth has raised some questions that I would like to have answered "If possible." Being that there was two of these events that happened to me. Is it possible that my brain suffered a any trauma due to the length that the tooth was actually inside my mouth causing all kinds of havoc?
