I went to the dentist with a mild toothache for about a week ago. I assumed the pain must be from my second molar since I had it filled last year and even though there is no visible swelling, I felt the pain from there. The dentist asked if I want a canal or just an extraction. I went for the extraction. After four days, I noticed a cavity in the beside the extraction site and I felt pain again. Could this be the tooth which was painful when I first visited the dentist? It was hidden away by the extracted tooth. Do you think we extracted the wrong tooth? If I'll have this one extracted again, will there be no any problem if I have two gaps together?
Thank you very much for your answers.
