I had two root canals, one right front tooth and one next to it within one year period of each other. It's the one to the right of the front tooth that has the most problems. The tooth was compromised because the first dentist preforated the root when doing the root canal.
I went to a specialist who fixed it but gave it a 70% chance. Now I'm in intermittant pain, some jaw pain, and the tooth is tender to the touch. Will I lose the tooth? Can they do any other procedure? ...Visitor from VT
It doesn't sound good, but you've done everything possible to save it. I personally would have it removed and a dental implant placed at the same appointment.
A temporary cosmetic tooth can be immediately placed upon the implant so you don't go around without a front tooth. Good Luck.
