Three months ago I visited my dentist because I had a slight gum tenderness around one of my front incisor teeth. He suggested that I should rub Corsodyl around it twice a day. This treatment didn’t seem to work so he took an X ray which revealed that there was an infection. Probably five years previously, this tooth had been capped. He then suggested that he should attempt a root canal treatment, which he did ten days ago. Sadly, for me he said that he had not been able to do this successfully. I think he said it was due to “corrosion” ! He said come back and see me on the 9th June and we will decide what to do. Obviously, I do not wish to lose this front tooth; – would it be a good idea to be referred to a specialist endodontis ? I do not have any pain – at the moment – a very slight discomfort when I eat. I f you do suggest that I go to a specialist should I do this before 9th June and are you able to recommend someone really good in the area OR has it to be London ? Many thanks indeed for your help.
