Eye discomfort after a root canal


Posted by Michael on July 05, 1999 at 14:26:22
I recently had a root canal.It wasn't a very good one
,because a part of the filling material was forced
above the foramen apicale (apex) higher than it should be.
Could I develope a fungal infection of the eye caused by CA(OH)2 which is know to be a very good media for east growth ?
Thanks

Fungal infections of the eye are not common.  If you are not immunocompromised the chances of developing such infection is unlikely.  If you are experiencing trouble with your vision or a red irritated eye you should see your ophthalmologist.
