Recurrent infection causes

User Level:
Posted by: ballfan  (9 years ago)
Hi there,

My first molar on the upper left side was hurting so I went to the dentist. He said I needed a root canal and a crown for this tooth. After these procedures, the tooth did not go away. The dentist did some adjustments, then I ended up with root canal retreatment but my condition did not become any better. After the dentist’s effort to save this tooth, it was finally extracted six months ago. After two months, I again have another infection in the second premolar tooth (beside the pulled tooth). I got swelling below my chin along my neck. Any ideas why I keep getting infection? I was again scheduled for a root canal on this tooth.

I am not sure but this type of problem may also occur because of harsh brushing, but for such situation always follow your dentist advice
