I'm a Pharmacist and not looking to sue my dentist but I'm a little upset that this problem was allowed to go on for so long, here it is: had a root canal in 2004, on and off I've been experiencing pain in that region. I told my dentist about this on several occasions, the pain would go away and wasn't too intense. He told me it was gum irritation between the crown he did after and my teeth. 10/30/09 I had to have an apioectomy and was told I had "alot of bone loss". I think my dentist should have done a periapical xray long ago just to be safe. Please help

  • I understand you must be quite upset but it happens sometimes when the clncal symptoms are vague as you were sayig that you were having pain on and off but nothing very acute and proloned. So some times the dentist tend to overlook the peri apical pathology as these sort of symptoms are common for gum infection.
