Okay....this may be a crappy thread, but I need an answer since my dentist is closed till Monday.
I had an abcessed tooth a few days ago from a crown prep where the roots were left in place. It abcessed pretty bad and I tried removing the temp myself at work with a set of needle nose pliers it hurt so bad. I went in later that day when they could fit me in and had it irragated and medicated and prepped for a root canal (scheduled for wednesday).
My question now is, is it possible for the previous infection to spread to another tooth. I don't know if its in my head, but the tooth next to the one I just had worked on feels bad now. Or would this just be from the previous infection?
BTW: I do brush , I cracked the tooth, thats why I needed the crown in the first place.
