WHY dentistry does not recognise jawbone infection

Posted , 4 users are following.

 After suffering for eight years after botched root canal treatment I understand why NHS dentists are reluctant to refer jawbone infection. I consider it a massive cover-up because they all  know that route Canals fail, and mercury amalgam causes disaster in the jawbones. If you have the misfortune of mercury amalgam filled roots then you are on a course for jawbone infection. 

 has anyone noticed how a dentist will fob you off and not investigate.  If this well-known infection got out Amongst the general public there would be an epidemic of  cases needing treatment: earache sore throat swollen glands, eye orbit pain, temporal headaches.  Chronic fatigue Night sweats fever malaise ... 

Dentistry is actually alchemy. have you noticed how dentists  are reluctant to: Extract, fill, or root fill a tooth... I firmly believe that dentistry IS medicine and they can't decapitate you and treat your jaw as a separate form/ entity  of medicine.   If you are a victim of dentistry and unlucky enough to have jawbone  infection you will know that it affects your whole body constitutionally .    The dentist has told me to see my doctor and my doctor has told me to see my dentist !!!  The dentist says oh I'm an NHS dentist I don't clean out the jaw.  After an extraction:  but yes I've taken your tooth out and you have dry socket which means an infection.  I have referred you. Then reader it is a wing and a prayer because nobody wants to know about jawbone infection in the UK NH system ... I wonder why.. you have been warned.  Jawbone infection is the next thalidomide.. a result of root filling  incompetence and ignorance . You can't mess with that very sensitive region of where the tooth root tip meets the jawbone.  Dentistry alchemy ....

    I get it this happened to me. OM of the jaw after root canal. Years of pain. 3 years to diagnose by a different dentist.

    I'm in the USA & things aren't much different here, they act like your head (teeth) are detached from the rest of your body & neither effects the other which is totally rubbish.

    I suffered a jawbone infection from utterly ignorant dentist (most are) and his botched surgery of failed root canal. Suffering horribly for 4 yrs now (see my post in Jaw Osteomyelitis discussion group). All could have been avoided. Root canals are all chronic infections to some degree!
