20th of Nov, 2011 by User910496
I am an established patient at Celebrity Smiles Dental Care of North Port. On October 21st I called to come in for a bad toothache. Dr. Joseph Gaeta is my assigned dentist, however unavailable at the time so I am told to see Dr. Devo who also practices with Dr. Gaeta. I was told immediatly that I needed a root canal so he began the procedure to relieve the pain I was in. The canals were infected, so he drained them awhile and placed files to measure them. He then placed a temporary filling and sealed the tooth. We talked about possibly doing a bridge later on. The next day October 21st I called and came in to the office still in pain. Dr. Gaeta saw me after waiting two hours to speak to him in the dentist chair. I said the tooth still hurts fix it now while its still fresh. He then said I don't want to go in and irritate that again just wait a few days for the inflamation to calm down. I will be out of town this weekend and you can come in next week to see Dr. Devo again. So then I waited for my next available apt. on Monday October 24th. Dr. Devo said wait until the 27th when I can finish the root canal. When I came in the 27th he finished the root canal. Then I noticed he began to file both my teeth down right away without even explaining to me what he was doing. His assistant began to make the impressions for a temporary bridge and very quickly made them up and glued it on my newly finished root canal(which turns out that it was done wrong anyway). I was in pain until a post opt check on November 8th, they looked at the xrays of the finished root canal and said it was very well done and it will soon feel better. It felt so much worse I thought they were intentionally torturing me so I took the matter into my own hands. I contacted another dentist quickly on november 16th for a second opinion. Dr Moitoso took an xray and immediately noticed something wrong. The canals are about 2mm short of reaching the apex and your infection is propagating fast. He referred me to Endodontist Associates for an apt. the next day on november 17th, and the endodontist on staff there took another xray and discovered that the root canals were not filled enough therefore not reaching the apex causing severe infection and pain. Immediately I went home and called my other dentist who extracted my other two failed root canals by Dr. Geary Yamashita of Coast Dental. Dr. Ballentine had made it clear to me after calling him that he would take care of me right away. So today November 21st. I went to see him for an emergency extraction of the infected failed root canal. The tooth was a difficult extraction that required special tools to elevate the tooth out in sections,and then needed to surgically stitch the opening. The relief was felt right away. I went home and laid on the floor in my music room (my son made allstate convention in tampa this year for playing exceptional bass clarinet, and I play latin jazz , samba and flamenco guitar).
