Root filling: I am currently having a root filling done, but whenever the dentist inserts the paper point a small amount of blood appears.
Sometimes I feel some pain as well it takes around 4-5 days to heal. Because of this, the root filling proceedure is dragging on. Can you advise what is actually the problam and why I am bleeding.
The pain is lasting even though the nerve is removed. My doctor is clueless as to why the pain and the bleeding is occurring. Please help ...Visitor from Sri Lanka
This can be several things.
A possible fracture or the dentist has simply perforated the end of the root.
I would check the length of the tooth with a new xray
