Pain after 2 root canals then tooth extraction
My husband had 1 root canal, still in pain 2nd root canal from root in. Still in pain had the tooth extracted. It was infected.
still having pain 2 wks later. He went to the hospital with anxiety, panic attacks because the pain is unbearable.
the surgeon put him on IV anti biotics pain meds. Still in pain and severly depressed had to go on anti depression drugs. He feels like there is no hope for recovery. Phantom pain possible? Or nerve damage? (extraction was not tramatic)


This discussion is related to prolonged pain after tooth extraction.

If no structural pathology identified, possible pain source may come from myofascial referred pain or cns sensitization.Pain associated with cns malfunction may be managed by antidepressant ,e.g amitryptyline, or neurontin, or lyrica.
