Don't do it. It's too risky.
There is a coverup in the dental field, regarding the thousands of peoples lives ruined by Root Canal procedures. I have a recurring systemic
infection from a botched root canal, more specifically, from the botched reworking of a botched root canal. If I would have had the tooth pulled
before the 2nd root canal, I would be fine.
What happened was, I had a tooth that had been broken, dislocated multiple times due to extreme sports. The tooth eventually went bad and needed
root canal. I immediately got bumps on my gum, 2 of them above the RC'ed tooth, and above other teeth unrelated. The dentist assured me he's the
expert and Im a nobody, everything was fine. This was before I had any interest in CT, and trusted doctors fully.
Everything seemed fine, except for the new bumps and blister on my gums. For about a year. Then the tooth ache returned. I put it off, not
wanting to get a front tooth pulled at that point in my life. My mother kept sending me pet antibiotics, and I kept taking them, hoping to quell the
infection. Note: I took antibiotics for probably a year straight, ignorantly listening to my mother, who had always been the unofficial nurse of the
family, if anyone can relate. The only negative symptoms I acquired from the antibiotic use, (other than bacterial resistance Im sure) was a smelly
scalp. Specifically on and below the cowlick area. This should be a large clue, valuable information to doctors. If you know anyone with "smelly
scalp syndrome", extended prebiotic use cured mine. (This not the focus of my post today.)
When the inevitable was realized, that this tooth infection was not going to be healed, I swallowed my pride and prepared to be missing a front
tooth for a while. I went to a new dentist, since I had recently relocated. They assured me the tooth could be saved; re-root canaled. But of
course, I would need to see a specialist. The specialist they sent me to also refused to touch me, and sent me down the line to somone who would.
At the time I believed this to be technical limitations, however since becoming aware of the condition of the RC'd tooth, I see it as a moral issue:
they weren't willing to risk touching the thing,but knew somone who was willing to ruin the rest of my life for a luxury boat payment.
This 3rd endodontist in line assured me he could fix the tooth. I still had extraction on the table, my gut instinct told me just to pull it. But
I gave in, and let them redo it.
Now, between the time the first root canal went bad, and the 2nd attempt at root canaling it, I had several mystery symptoms I would have never
thought were related to the dental work. My scalp had become insanely dry, flakey, and my hair was thinning dramatically on the right side.
Testicular pain on the right side. Narcolepsy-like sleeping spells, awaking in total confusion. Going in for the 2nd root canal, all these problems
seem to have been addressed as individual, unrelated ailments. I was feeling fine other than the tooth ache.
This is where the revelation takes place. Immediately after the 2nd root canal procedure, to the day, every weird symptom Ive had came back ten
fold. The entire right side of my head "shriveled" so tightly that I did not lose a strand of hair for days. Then they all came out in
clumps,extremely thinning the area right below the cowlick. Bumps formed all over the region, lymph nodes swole all the way to my jaw. Pains in my
nose. Unable to walk due to testicle swelling. Intense brain fog. Cant stay awake for more than a few hours. Heart palpitations, jaw pain, neck
pain, on the right side. Major sinus issues, horrible breath and throat tightness. Constant drainage causing nausea.
I could not sleep from the Root Canal Headache. Google that term if you want to get a feel for how many people this happens to. I wanted answers,
and nobody had them. One homeopathic dentist suggested bacteria had entered my bloodstream. Others, both MD and DDR, laughed or rolled their eyes
at my queries.
I found one dentist who was willing to explain what went wrong with my tooth. What the other dentists had been calling a "lateral canal" was
actually a gigantic hole that had been drilled through the side of my tooth, and crammed full of filler as the fix for that oopsy. Comparing x-rays of
my tooth to teeth with actual lateral canals, I can say every dentist who saw my x-ray knew exactly what they were looking at. The hole was the
reason for the new blister on my gums that I was told to ignore by the dentist who botched the RC. 2nd, the apex of the root had been drilled
straight through, and filler was pumped up and out of the tooth, visible as a 'fountain' or 'grappling hook' shape flowing outwards/downwards
from the apex.
The 2nd root canal was nothing but an attempt to reseal these man-made holes, and they ended up pumping even more chemicals and filler into the
surrounding tissues, cavities and circulatory system. The taste of 'dental concrete' was strong down the back of my throat for weeks.. As I
frantically tried to get somone to grasp the severity of the problem, they all marked it as delusion. Even my primary care physician wanted to
prescribed anti depressants, for complaints of swelling and neck pains following a dental procedure.. Western medicine is abominable.. These doctors
are brainwashed, or something worse.
Anyways, Im leaving out a lot just to move forward with this grating account of the final chapters of my life. I had the tooth extracted. Of course
the maxiofacial surgeon sold me on a bone graft for future implant. The bone graft filled the area of the 'grappling hook' shape and also the
blister drainage pocket. These bumps on my gums are bigger than ever, and theres not even a tooth below them.
Through this whole time, I found relief, the only thing that kept me from going on a rampage, from more antibiotics. I took antibiotics for a cool
2 months after the extraction. I stopped taking them, and everything was fine, for a few more months. I could have never been happier to have such
a haggard smile.
Then, I wake up one night having fell asleep in a chair, with my neck in a bad position leaving it weak and stiff upon movement. . I managed to kink
my neck trying to straighten up, and immediately, a rush of pain up the right side of the neck circulates around my scalp, and stops at my left
temple of all places. I looked in the mirror and observed 3 red 'pimples' form on my temple, in real time, exactly where the pain had landed. I
got the shivers, cold sweats, and feeling as Im about to puke for roughly 18 hours. By then my scalp had shriveled up, I had an intense case of dry
dandruff for weeks, something I've never had in my life. A crackling sound when I part my hair, it was so crusty.
By the time I got to the doctor, another vain attempt at getting help, the symptoms had receded. I keep telling myself, "okay that's one last
little hidden pocket of bacteria working its way out." Weeks later, another incident. Starts with 2 pains in my head meeting in the middle. Of
course, my scalp got super sensitive on the right side, lumps, and back to narcolepsyville.
