When we started this procedure I was told this tooth was a healthy tooth. I had an infection in the fourth tooth from the back top left, which was on a three tooth bridge. The three tooth bridge was removed, the fourth tooth from the back pulled.
I am having pain in this last tooth and that is why I was told I needed a root canal; when going to have the root canal I was told of the calcification and need to see a specialist. I have a lot of money invested in this procedure right now and a four tooth bridge ready to be placed on this tooth that needs a calcified root canal. I am so afraid this tooth will give me problems and not be able to hold this bridge once they complete (or even able to complete) this root canal. It is an infected tooth. With this additional information, what should I do?
