I had a crown put on #13 in 1995, about 6 months later I had to get a root canal on that tooth. This year I had sensitivity to cold on #14 and my Entodonist recommended RCT. I had the RCT done in March, three visits total. My reglar dentist did the core to prep for a crown. In June I started getting pain in my cheek by my nose. An xray showed an abscess involving #12 & #13. My dentist and entodonist recommended RCT on #12. That was done in July. The abscess didnt resolve and I started getting swelling in my cheek. They then recommended that #13 be extracted. That was done in early Sept. The abscess resolved and the extraction site healed good. But I still have swelling in my cheek. I had a 103 temp and enlarged lymph nodes in my neck, both sides in October. I went to ER and they gave me IV antibiotics and a script for Amoxicilian, during the other RCT and extraction treatments I was given Clindamycin. I visited my oral surgeon and he did a panarama xray and didnt see anything out of the ordinary with the teeth. He suggisted I visit my entodonist to verify I dont have a cracked root ot tooth. He couldnt say why I had swelling in my cheek.
I visited my entodontist and he did tests (hot/cold/shock) and I didnt have any reactions on any teeth on the left side. He said I should visit my doctor to see why I have swelling.
I visited my doctor and he examined my silivary glands by my ears and said they are not swollen and said I should see my oral surgeon and he then gave me a script for Clindamycin. I'm getting tired of this run around, should I see an ENT who specializes in Silivary gland issues or go back to my oral surgeon?
