Hi,

I had a issue with a slightly wobbly tooth with a crown attached (UL2) tail end of last year that hurt, it would actually make my nose, lip numb if brushed with sensitive toothpaste and make my nose run.
Eventually, I had a root canal 1st of Feb, which has helped with the brushing issue somewhat, bit but I still get numbness if the tooth moves on eating etc.

Anyway I have pain around the tooth and in the socket area and have done of nearly 8 weeks now, different people have told me it can take a few weeks or months to settle, but next week its 2 months and its still very painful everyday.

Bit concerned about the numbness under the nose and sinus issues it produces.

Am I being to impatient?, anyone else had similar issues?

Thanks.

I understand you have pain but I don't have much information to go by. Get your sinuses checked as it can cause pain in your upper teeth and make sure your teeth are in good condition.

Thanks,
I have seen a MaxFac specialist who said my maxillary sinuses are clear after a CBCT. The scan did not do the frontal sinuses through.
The few people I have been to see have said its socket soreness, or to re-root canal it in case something is going on (Xray doesnt show much).

With only the information you provided, I can only guess the possibilities. The most likely is that you may be experiencing a lot of stress and may be grinding and clenching as a result. The numbness may be Bell's Palsy or some facial nerve dysfunction and or viral infection in the facial nerve branch.

Frontal sinuses are well away from teeth. Maxillary sinuses abut the back teeth and sometimes pain from the max. sinuses can be confused with back teeth pain. You don't fit in that category.
Socket? Nothing's been extracted, has it? Anyway, from that low-res Xray, it appears you may have bone loss, prob due to gum disease. This would also explain looseness.

Better Xray attached.
Its great I have had so many responses, but can I do anything about it?.
If we forget the facial weirdness, if its bone loss or soreness in the socket, will it heal, or am I scuppered.
