Hi guys, I had a painless lump on the upper gum, went to the dentist today, had x-rays, I found out it was an infection of the tooth root! She said root canal is tricky and might not work, so I have booked in for a tooth extraction on Friday! But its the top premolar, third tooth from centre so I will have a gappy smile....great! Oh I also need 3 fillings as well, but I refused.....to much drilling! I'm habituated to my tinnitus but still worry about it increasing, has anyone had tooth extractions since having tinnitus? Did it affect your tinnitus? Thanks.
