Root Canals

Abscessed Teeth?

09/02/2010

Question:

I am very concerned I had two root canals done about a year ago on two teeth one on the right side and one on the left. The left side now has an absess tooth because the tooth is cracked and the other side where the tooth was worked on my gum is white. I fear the dentist but If I dont get this looked it could become really bad. any advice???

Answer:

I am sorry to hear that you have a fear of going to the dentist. I would recommend that you seek care from a dentist/endodontist and communicate your concerns. Dental professionals can help alleviate your fears and address any dental needs.
