Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have wisdom teeth erupted in the mandible. I suffer from severe migraine, and my doctors say it is from a tooth problem. I am afraid to do the surgery, but the pain persists. Please help.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I thoroughly read your query and understand your concern.

There are three main urgent problems with your teeth. After going through your reports and X-rays (attachments are hidden to protect the patient's identity) following are my suggestions for your problem:

1. You have to extract the lower left side wisdom tooth.

2. It seems your upper left first molar, which your dentist has done root canal treatment, put a post inside and a crown outside, is infected. It may have to be removed.

3. Your right lower first molar has a large abscess below it, which means, its root canal is also not done properly. So that also has to be either removed or RCT should be re-done.

I suggest you remove all these three teeth, and your headache may go away. Or at least go to a well-experienced endodontist and re-do root canal treatment for the two first molars, which I have pointed out above. And remove the wisdom tooth definitely, which I have mentioned above. Your dentist has done a very bad root canal treatment of all teeth. So find a good endodontist, if you want to save the teeth or get them removed.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.
