Crowns, Bridges, Dentures, Implants
A month ago I had a filling applied under a permanent bridge. I had a very slight occasional ache in that area and am now taking antibiotic for one week. Once this makes the ache disappear is it safe to wait and see if the ache recurs before booking a root canal or could more damage be caused in the interim?
It will be impossible for me to offer specific advice, since more diagnostic information would be needed for me to give you the proper advise. I suggest asking your dentist.
