How long will it take for my gums to settle down following apicoectomy surgery?

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010
Q.

Dear Dr Kailesh
I have recently undergone an apiceptomy, however I am growing concerned because it has now been two weeks since the procedure and my gum where the apiceptomy was performed is very swollen and sore. Is this normal? if so how long is it before the swelling disappears.

Do you know of any cases where white fillings have caused OFG?

Monday, October 4th, 2010
Q.
After many years of neglecting my teeth I went back to a dentist and needed some filling work and extractions. After attending the dentist for a number of months I noticed that I was getting a swelling [non tender] around the mouth and lower face. This was eventually diagnosed as OFG [ora-facial granularmytosis]. I still suffer from this and, whilst not painful, iit is unsightly. Do you know of any cases/instances where having white fillings fitted kicked off a condition such as this? I don’t seem to be able to get to the bottom of the cause and wondered if it might be the white filling material in the mouth? Many thanks,,

I am experiencing pain in the tooth next to the one that was root canaled, is this normal?

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010
Q.
Hi, i did a root canal on friday on an upper tooth that was damaged but had fillings done months ago. im traumatized after the treatment, felt shaky right after i walked out of the clinic. After the root canal treatment, i did feel good for awhile but on the saturday, i had swelling on my whole of right face, even my tonsil and neck..swelling got worst by the day. Doc only prescribed me with mefanamic acid for the pain (no antibiotic given). even my head hurts. i visited the doc again on monday (today), re-cleaning of the tooth was done. swelling is still there (this time antibiotic was given), when i got home, i realized that the tooth next to it felt some pain. is that normal? or do i have to remove that tooth (the tooth that was re-cleaned seems ok so far).. swelling didnt go down yet, i still look like i got punched on the face, pain is minimized but i am feeling feverish after taking the antibiotic..is that a bad or good thing?. very worried and in pain…='( Help…,
