Last week, I've had a and a molar adjacent to it pulled out. They were badly decayed and infected. The healing process went on without any problem. My problem is the tooth beside the extracted ones. I cannot bite down on it, it's over sensitive to hot and cold, it hurts when I touch it with my tongue. My dentist thinks that the infection has spread over to this tooth,too. He want to try a canal but he cannot schedule me yet because the extraction site is not fully healed yet. What can I do to prevent the infection from getting worse? In case the tooth is no longer repairable, I would have a big gap from the three extracted teeth. Any suggestion on how can I deal with this?
Thanks a lot for this forum site!
