Some months ago I had an abcessed tooth (upper left side of jaw) treated with injections of calcium hidroxide. Soon thereafter my olfactory nerves "died".
Is the relationahip between the nerve damage and the calcium hidroxide injections likely a coincidence? How about the tooth abcess and the nerve damage?
I was told by a specialist that the damage to the olfactory nerve was irrersible. Consequently I have no sense of smell or tast of flavors.
Should I take "irreversible" as the final word?
