My wife is getting towards having nerve removal. The dentist pushing a rubber into tooth and is supposed to review an X-ray and then if it isn't far enough in then do it more but her dentist only got the assistant to take the X-ray and never reviewed it with her present to check that it was far enough in. Sorry that I really don't the procedure. She will see him next week.

If she is feeling better now then that is a good sign. When she has a follow up then she can discuss the x ray, but sounds like it's worked out ok.

He should've reviewed it before releasing her for the day. If there was underpacking then it could've been rectified on the spot before the glue hardened. Now you'll have to wait till next appointment, and if it isn't to full depth then he'll have to redo it. No great worry, just wait and see. If you can get a digital image exported onto a CD or flash drive then you can put it up here for comment.
