I have a molar that is hurting because it has a little bubble sticking out of it. It started hurting really bad 2 days ago. On that tooth, i have had a root canal done in a forgin country, However, besides the pain, i think, or it feels like, my tooth is getting loose. What would be the process of fixing this tooth?

  •  It looks like your tooth is infected which may be because of failed root canal treatment or fractured filling if crown is not given. The infection can also be because of some gum problem around the tooth. If the gum problem is there along with infection in tooth then the tooth becomes loose. The dentist will take xray and access the condition of the bone around the tooth. If possible then along with Re Root Canal Treatment, gums surgery is done to fix the tooth. All this procedure is covered in insurance.
