I have had an abcess tooth and turned out to be a root canal job.
I have others right now waiting on attention, no pain, but also told the tooth is dead as well by several dentists, if that makes sense, and sadly a front bottom, eye tooth, think called waiting to be extracted. With this in mind, now I to think what will fill that gap as it is too obvious to walk around forever without that tooth.
I've had a history of rotten teeth, root canals, extractions, fillings, bad dentistry, etc. It's a vicious cycle sadly besides eating very healthy too. Sometimes I feel it's the mouth I was born with and do my best to care for.
