I went to an endodontist, regarding pain in the right side of my mouth. My regular dentist couldn't find any issues. Turns out, my bottom molar is dead and abscessed. Tooth 30. How long can a tooth be dead before it abscesses!? This was a total shock to me. I just had a cleaning and bitewings done in early February. Now I'm scared my other teeth will die without warning.
