Its had problems for years but the abscess goes away. Right now there is an ulcer like a small pea on my gum behind the tooth.
Its probably full of pus but it will be there for a while then disappear - usually not to return for months.
So a root canal will cost prob over $1000 and may not work.
Extraction $100 and the ulcer is gone forever. This is a tooth right at the back.
These ulcers are linked to heart disease right ?
