thanks for your speedy reply.

the dentist did mention quite early on when the pain started that the surgeon might have to operate and go in from just below my teeth and see what the problem is and clean it up. I know the maxillo facial guy is SUPER busy and he is an awesome doctor and very very anal when it comes to deciding what to do and its a great characteristic to have in someone in his profession but i'  m getting frustrated with the pain. also what i forgot to metion is that the dentist cleaned out the roots and put some meds in which did help a bit. but then not for long. i wont hold you too it but what is the worst case scenario according to you? i sometimes feel like ripping my jaw out! thanks again!

ps the dentist was concerned about a small black dot above the one screw on one of my smaller xrays. that specific one was taken two weeks ago wednesday. that was the last one.

i'  m not too keen to change surgeons as he has all my records but if push comes to shove i def will do that!

the worst case scenario is that you will lose the tooth.
I think push has already come to shove. If your surgeon cannot see you soon, ask for a copy of your records and see someone else.
