A sore showed up on my g. Two days later my dentist did an X-ray and said I had an abscess with severe bone loss. He referred me to an endontist who said maybe root canal and maybe looss of tooth or teeth and possibly even a bone graft
I had my teeth cleaned two months ago and have been in dentist office twice since then for minor filling repairs. Why was this no caught until so much damage occurred? I'm facing huge expenses and discomfort?
