Hi guys! So back last year I got a root canal on #29 and the dentist who did it overfilled it! By a lot! I saw on x-ray where the resin goes way down past the root of my tooth into the gum. That tooth has never been right since the root canal. It's very sensitive to cold, sweet ect. I can not chew on it either as it's sensitive to pressure. It was suggested that I get a apicoectomy to clean out the extra resin that is in there. I really can't afford to have the tooth pulled as I'm missing the molar right beside it as well as the molar on the other side. Will a apicoectomy likely solve the issue and how is recovery? I'm kinda freaking out about it.
