I am a 35 year old male. I had a root canal treatment done on the lower left side second molar about four to five years back by an endodontist. Two years after the treatment, the ceramic crown came off and was replaced by a metallic crown. Recently, I had a pus pimple under that tooth from the last three to four months, which would appear and then fade away on its own. One periodontist at the same clinic, saw my case and advised a flap surgery and subsequently removed the infection during this process. PRF was also placed during this process. Within 15 days of this surgery, the pus pimple again reappeared. On consulting the periodontist again, he advised that the bone under the teeth is growing as the PRF was placed and the infection is draining out and causing this pus pimple. This would continue for three to four months until the bone grows completely. However I am not convinced with this theory and wish to seek a second opinion to save my tooth. I am attaching the periodontist prescription and a few X-ray images. I request you to please advise what could be the correct route of treatment and help me save my tooth as I do not want to go for an extraction or implant.
