Dead teeth

User Level:

Posted by: iam_aiva  (9 years ago)
During my dental check up, the dentist said that based from the x-ray and pulp test he conducted my two teeth were already dead. He also said that I have an infection. He referred me to an oral surgeon for extraction. I do not any pain or swelling. These teeth do not bother me at all. Should I go to another dentist for a second opinion? Please advise me before I’ll go and have these teeth extracted.

Hi dhodges123,

One of the teeth has started to become dark in color but not so noticeable. The other one still looked like the rest of my teeth, though; there's no change in color yet. Both teeth cannot sense hot and cold anymore because the nerve inside has died.

Well, the nerves are dead. When will they become symptomatic? No one can say. But they will one day. It might be during a vacation; it might be on a holiday when all dentists are closed.
