Root canal under bridge
I`m having pain with the back tooth under a bridge, can a dentist do a rool canal through the bridge on the tooth without removing bridge?
Yes, a root canal can be done without removing the bridge. They just drill through the restorative material and when the root canal is done, they put a filling in where they drilled, to fill the hole.
