    I had a root canal done 5yrs. ago., I'm afraid it may be infected now. Slightly swollen around base of cap.

    I went to my dentist 6mos. ago, he took x-ray's then, evrything was fine.

    My worry, 1: no dental insurance

    I also wonder if root canal and bacteria cause FM. I want to find a GOOD endontist that knows about this connection, but have no idea how to.

    The net comes up empty.

    Dentist's I thought kbew about Ra and heart disease getting worse with bad teeth, but mine had no idea about the possible FM connection.

    Don't wan to pull tooth, other teeth will sift.

    Don't want another root canal, my neck, head and shoulder pain is so bad afraid to have to sit there so long.

    Really want a endontist ( root canal specialist) that knows about FM.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks, hope I make sense, just got back from PT in pain.

    will read all post's, may not be able to respond.
