Pain after a root canal treatment

User Level:
Posted by: hackerott  (10 years ago)

In November of last year, I had a root end treatment. Everything went well and I didn’t experience any pain. Recently, this tooth has begun to hurt. The pain is mild, but I’m nevertheless bothered by it. I went to dental out-patient care and they told me that the tooth has to be pulled. However, I’m not sure whether this calls for a radical solution right away. It is the last molar (a wisdom tooth). I just wanted to get a second opinion here.

On the other hand, I thought that it was important to preserve the teeth as long as possible.

Thank you very much

Best regards

I opted to have my third molars extracted because of infection. I was unable to reach these areas when brushing and flossing and food particles were trapped in the area behind the wisdom teeth which caused the infection.
