: Had a root canal with crown over metal stem- years ago.
: Crown needed replaced. Last week dentist pried off the old crown and put on temporary.
: 2 days later I have severe pain at that site. Antiobiotic and motrin and its all better, but xray shows defect(radiolucent) at base of the (old) root canal and they want to do an apicoectomy.
: I say no thanks- the thing is fine and was always fine except until they starting messing with it.
: If the problems returns -I'll deal with it then and be no worse off.
: Anyone with input?
ive had 3 root canals & 3 crowns (on the same teeth ) in 10 years----2 0f the three had to be extracted within 6 months and the third one ( just got 2 weeks ago)
