Thanks for the opinion.
- Abscess has most likely arisen from previous large filling in back of tooth. The ortho treatment should be stalled, and you should see an endodontist for an RCT. It will take a minimum of 6 months before you can restart ortho treatment.
- Alternatively, if you extract this tooth, it'll probably make the ortho treatment more difficult because you'll lose a large anchor tooth; an implant might then possible if all goes well, but not assured.
- The wisdom tooth just off screen is probably of no use either way, so don't go thinking you'll just extract the 1st molar and move everything forward.
- I'd go the path of endo.
Yes, I had the rct. They advise me also to do a "bone" cleaning at the paradontosis doctor...and bone adition if necesarry. The endo doctor said on the xray the infection was large...and she gave me 50% chanses. After the root was extracted she said that everything went well...hope it will get better . Thanks a lot for the advices you gave really useful. Really apriciated!Can you explain a bit more, please? Did you go to a dentist, or an endodontist? If the RCT is completed, then there is no indication for root cleaning (planing?) and/or bone addition (grafting?). Normally the bone will naturally reform after the RCT is completed, but it will take a minimum of 6 months to be sure from an Xray that all is going well.
