I am 55 years old - I have a lower molar that has caused me

Customer Question

Hello,
I am 55 years old - I have a lower molar that has caused me pain for quite some time over one year - it is mostly filling. Recently my dentist took an x-ray and said it is abscessed and put me on antibiotics - I have finished the antibiotic but it still feels the same - do you recommend removal of the tooth or any suggestions. I do not have a problem with removal - just want to stop the pain. Thank you

Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

That greatly depends on what the X ray shows. is it possible for you to upload the x ray image here?
