Root Canal Retreatment Screw Up?

Aug 28, 2017

I just got done with a re-treatment at a clinic. I went for the final stage to replace the gutta pertua and the permanent bond.

The attending dentist put the gutta purcha in and then melted it all at once. My tooth is filled entirely with it.Then rushed to finish and did not put back the filling, which they decided on a temporary filling. Besides the tooth being completely filled with gutta pertua I am afraid when I go back for them to fix it, the bacteria will be able to get trough tiny cracks and eventually destroy the tooth completely. Any advice on this particular problem?
