I have been having all sorts of dental work done, two root canals on the top left one which was a retreat. I also have an inpacted wisdom tooth on the bottom left which has been inflammed and the root canals still does not feel quit normal. I was wondering if the inpacted bottom wisdom tooth could have something to do with that. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
I have been having ear pain and neck pain which the oral surgon said is normal with impacted wisdom teeth. I have not had it pulled because i want to haveboth bottom teeth taking out at the same time and he wont do it for some reason.

I’m not sure why you’re not following the advice of your oral surgeon and asking me. I can’t see the x-rays and can’t examine you, so I can just guess, but I’m guessing that your oral surgeon doesn’t want to take out the root canal tooth because there’s nothing wrong with it. I can’t think of another reason. I’m sure he would charge money to take it out, so he would gain financially from having it out. He sounds to me like a man of integrity and I would follow his advice.
You’re playing with fire to leave that infected wisdom tooth in your mouth. The ear pain and neck pain are warning signs – your body is trying to tell you to get this taken care of. Those infections can flare up and can, on rare occasions, become life-threatening.
