Hi, I had a deep filling done on my lower right second molar. It caused problems so my dentist advised a root canal. She couldnt get all the way to the tips of the roots and said she couldnt promise it wouldnt get infected. She said wait 3 months to see if it settles and then if it does i can have a crown.
This was done about 4 weeks ago and i still get pain but it has got better. I avoid eating on it and i do give it the odd test now and again and it doesnt hurt to eat on it. I suppose my question is I’m only in need of taking pain killers say everyother day and only at the end of the day. is this good at this stage? if i do get an infection is this a failed root canal? im so nervous im going to loose the tooth.
