I have a put in to replace two pulled upper molar about 10 years ago. The tooth which holds the bridge has been aching a lot for the past few weeks. I went to the dentist who performed an on the tooth. The result showed there is an infection in the root of the tooth. The dentist tried very hard to remove the
so he could treat the tooth but he just can't get it off. He put me on a course of antibiotics and he instructed me to go back to him when I finish it.What are the risks involved in taking off a dental bridge? Can he put it back on after the canal therapy or do I need to get a new one?
I would really appreciate any answer you can give me!
