Did anybody here ever have a root canal tooth pulled and it eliminated their illness or health issues?
I see so much about this and as usual there are two sides on this subject. ( For General Conversation Sake Only)
Interesting!

Do you mean removal of the little pins and rods?

Ask me in 10 years. My dental health is so poor that I worry I'll be using dentures by the time I'm 45. (I brush and floss regularly, but I think I drew the short straw when it comes to tooth strength)

What I read was total tooth extraction. Nothing going on here but it was an interesting read.
Many who insisted it was true lost their jobs.

That is not good! Might be good to shop around too. As a kid I had a real butcher of a dentist. Of course that was before electricity was invented smile

Had a root canal around 18 years old or so. 15 years later had an abscess form and caused general sickness. Found out that the original dentist failed to pack the canals properly and the tooth was the source of the infection. It had apparently been festering for years. The infection caused the tooth to bond to the buccal wall and resulted in a bone graft being necessary after it was pulled.

I once held the honor of having the worst root infection my dentist had ever seen. I was strangely proud.

One of my Dad's friends had the opposite issue, his bad teeth were initially suspected for his health issues but it turned out to be cancer.

Never had a root canal. Had the option with one of my far back teeth and just had it pulled instead. I still have my wisdom teeth, and the wisdom tooth behind that tooth grew into the open space so I have a perfectly good tooth there again.

Since we're on the subject of dental, let me worn you about lemonade:

Stay away from it unless you able to brush and floss your teeth immediately afterwards.

Oh heck no. I'm no masochist. smile But the nerves were all dead so it didn't hurt at all. I was lucky in that regard. She did some fantastic work and I haven't had any issues with the crowned tooth 17 years later.

I miss that dentist. She was the perfect example of just because a doctor or dentist is old/older does not automatically make them 'better' at what they do. She was new to the practice. Chatting her up once I think I remember her being not yet 30 but she was up on all the latest procedures and equipment and had the fortune of working in a modernized office.

Moving out of state and finding a new dentist that came highly recommended by a family member was like stepping back in time. I got the sense that he was not very good, he wasn't very personable, and his office equipment looked like it was from the 70's. My new dentist had to re-do some of his work a few years later. An expensive lesson.

Yes. That's why I just go straight to implants now, since if the root canal can fail, why bother with it as an intermediate step.

...yup, did all that.
The cherry on the top was when an old-ish guy visit that dentist and told him "I haven't seen tools/equipment that from my college days..."

I never come back...

Had a bad tooth from being fed a steak from an old cast iron grill that left a piece of the iron on the steak and cracked the teeth. Had one pulled and got my first root canal in Progresso Nuevo Mexico last spring. Seems to be working out. If it goes bad will get implants along with the pulled tooth. Going back for two crowns this fall.

There are times where a tooth or other health issue can, in essence, poison the body. I have Hashimoto's (autoimmune thyroid destruction) and it seems that folks who have Hashimoto's initially do very well when the diseased thyroid is removed.

The reason given is that the immune system no longer attacks the thyroid. However, speculation is that the immune system then goes on to attack something else and cause other, more serious problems, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis or even MS.

Would seem to me that the removal of a diseased or decaying component is often necessary.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.
