4 years ago I had a root canal done to # 16 and dentist proceded to install a crown to that tooth. 1 year later pain was present XRAY was taken and we can see there is a small infection in the 3rd root (no post) of the tooth therefore dentist instructed me to see an specialist (surgery) to get an apicectomy. I never went.
2 years have passed and I just got more excruciating pain again Xray shows an infection.
Dentist 1 - Recommends an apicectomy (500 to 600$)
Dentist 2 - Recommends redo of Root Canal and crown (2000 - 2300$)
Dentist 3 - Recommends BOTH Root canal and apicectomy ( 3000$)
I really do not know what to do. I just finished taking the antibiotics, pain went away but I just DO NOT KNOW what to do.
