I see, we all have to make the decisions that are best for us. I hope it will be okay
The tooth I am having re done was filled with a deep filling 7 years ago, it had a protective layer of something put over the nerve before the filling was put in. This tooth felt great until Jan last year and I got an infection, I knew it was infected because the fact that my face was swollen and I was in agony with a little yellow spot on my gum was a kinda clue. I went to the dentist and he gave me antibiotics, I took them and it cleared up, then in Feb it flared up again so back to the dentist and more antibiotics and he said that it needed a rct. I went back in March last year when I had finished the antibiotics and had the rct done, the same day as it thawed out it hurt but I thought it was just because of the treatment, but the day after that my face was back up so more antibiotics. Well it was okay after that until April/May of last year when it go another flare up, I went back to the dentist and it was a different dentist, he gave me antibiotics and said he would pull it.
I didn't like this idea because my old dentist wouldn't have given up with it, so I changed dentist and got refer'd to the hospital where I am going now for it re doing.
The tooth has never had a crown on it so the x rays only had to see through the tooth, the infection is under the tooth near one of the three roots, until they get the stuff out of the root and clean it out and treat the infection it won't go. Unless the tooth is extracted then it is an instant cure. I have spent from last May until now willing the tooth not to flair up again and for this re do to be a success. So I have everything crossed for chickenjen and myself as we are both trying to keep troublesome rct'd teeth and praying lots.
