It may be my imagination - but the moment the tooth started to be loosen for removal - I started to feel better. I can breathe easier ! Hopefully this trend will continue !
Upon completion of the procedure the dentist noticed the root tip of the tooth was black. He showed it to me - indeed - very dark. He mentioned to never have seen that before. I cannot be sure at this point why it may be - but am sure I am better off without a blackening tooth root in my head ??
Do not overlook "dental nightmares" as a source of your anguish - it may be something to consider.
Best Wishes to all seeking health.
