| | Can a dead tooth hurt?
Hi all, new to board,
Hope someone can give me some advice.
Six months ago, I was told that my bottom left front molar was dead. No pain, so I left it alone and got a root canal on opposite side of mouth. Month ago, 1/2 back of dead tooth falls out. Still no pain. Today, alot of pain, tooth is hurting.
Do I go back to a dentist or oral surgeon, and if they pull it, what can they put in other than a bridge .
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
