Q. Is it safe to leave a dead tooth in the jawbone, no matter with what it is stuffed?
A. If the tooth feels secure and firm, no more tender than the rest of the teeth, it is a good bet. On the other hand, if the tooth is a bit extra wiggly, mobile or tender, you might increase your awareness and your antioxidants. If vertical or lateral pressure hurts the tooth, or if release of pressure creates pain, you are probably squeezing an internal infected chronic pimple.” If there is a recurrent swelling, bubble, or blister that occurs on the gum to the side of the tooth, you likely have constant drainage of chronic irritant to the nervous and immune systems.
