Need some opinion about tooth fracture. Really appreciate it.
I am very new to this forum. Please help me.
I have right lower jaw burning pain under the ear and side of the neck right side since may. I went to the dentist to check that out. He said, x-rays are normal but he suspect a tooth root fracture in lower first molar and did bite test. I feel little tender and sensitivity to bite on one spot on that tooth. So he said, he suspect a tooth fracture in the lower first molar and that is the reason for my lower jaw pain under ear and neck.
He took CbcT scan and said he is not very certain and suspecting a fracture. I went to Endodontist and he couldn't see any fracture and did cold, bite test. My molar tooth was sensitive to cold spray and to bite on one spot on that tooth. So the Endo said , I needed root canal.
I don't know if I should go with my dentist or endo opinion. My dentist said I need to extract and implant.
I had root canal in September and still same symptoms. My dentist suspect there is a fracture and want me to extract it. Will the crown help in my case?
I don't know if I need to extract tht tooth ? I have taken cbct scan at dentist office. But my Endo didn't take a look at this scan. Dentist sa saw it and said he suspect a tooth root fracture in lower first molar and want me to extract and immediately implant.
My physician said, it could be tmjd or some neuralgic pain too. So I don't know what's the reason for my pain. Constant burning pain in the lower jaw under ear and side of the neck. Please help me. Can anyone in this forum take a look at my scan and let me know if I have fracture. I trust this group. I don't know how this forum works. Do I need to post it somewhere else? How to post it in the correct category?
Appreciate your help in my case.
