Root Canals Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
I had a root canal done in last December for my lower tooth #31.

Now I can see swelling in the gum of the same tooth. There is no pain.

I went to the dentist, he suggested to remove the tooth and have an implant.

Who should I contact to get a follow up on this problem? There are no problems showing up in xray. The dentist told me that the RCT was not done properly and it is creating problems. ...Visitor from Dublin Ireland

Answer:
I would suggest another opinion from an endodontist (root canal specialist).

It may be possible to redo the root canal, or there may be another problem.

Corinne Scalzitti, DMD, MAGD
