Any experience greatly appreciated.
10 years ago I had an infection in a back molar I took antibiotics and it settled I was going to have a root canal but fell pregnant.
Over their ten years that tooth (crowned) sometimes ached a bit especially if I got poorly but nothing awful.
Six weeks ago it ached loads and got worse and worse over weekend by the Monday I was insanely in pain went to dentist had X ray and showed an abcess under root I took two lots of antibiotics and it settled down.
Basically dentist says root canal is unlikely to work as the canals are so narrow. He has said extraction end of august.
It's actually ok past few weeks pain wise except I have a big lump of what dentist said was bone now sticking out of side of gum it's not noticeable unless I poke it.
Does anyone have any experience of just leaving it all be for a while.
It's not hurting me and the only thing I worry about is that lump of bone I assume that is the root moved or something.
I really don't want it out if it's not hurting well not unless I have to.
