In Reply to: Dormant Abcess posted by Tom on October 08, 2000 at 18:09:20:

In my 20 years of dentistry as a dental assistant I have never heard the phrase dormant abcess. You can have a abcess and not know it for a long time , unfortunatly the way you find out is when you have alot of pain and the tooth becomes a "hot tooth" making it very uncomfortable and difficult to do the RCT.It is very unusual for your lower teeth to have abcesses on them especially if there is no decay present or you have gum diease. Do you recall ever getting hit in your mouth as a child, that would have caused damage to the nerves and it wont show for years.I would seek a second opinion first.
