Hi Andrew. I hope you can help me. I underwent an initial root canal treatment for a lower molar, the dentist also discovered an abscess which he removed.
Two weeks prior to the root canal treatment he X-rayed my tooth and proceeded to fill it, he hadn’t noticed the abscess or the dead root. How easy are these to spot? He then had to remove the new filling and start the initial root canal procedure.
However two days later my jaw and glands are still extremely swollen and sore, is this normal, or at least is it to be expected?
I look forward to receiving your response.
