I had my tooth checked up last year, and the doctor told me to go for an OPG as he was planning for a root canal therapy. But due to severe negligence and work, I could not do that. It is almost a year now, and tonight I am having a painful time. Please tell me whether there is a chance of spread of infection. Please help. My infected tooth is the right first molar of the lower jaw.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
As per your history and associated symptoms, it looks like you have now acute pulpitis leading to acute apical periodontitis. That means because of open pulp chamber, it is now infected.
You need to take antibiotics and analgesics for this one. In case you do not have any medical, allergic or any other systemic condition, I suggest:
Also, visit a dentist again and get it checked if there are any chances of RCT to save this tooth as soon as possible.
