I had an apicoectomy beginning of September this year. It was on a bridge, on one of the incisor posts which the bridge is cemented on. Previously it had a RCT, however before the apucoectomy I noticed an absess, hence the apicoectomy. Anyway we are in December and although the swelling has gone down, stitches have dissolved, the tooth below the bridge feels tender and the bridge has a very slight movement sometimes.

Common dental questions resolved on JustAnswer


The dental Experts on JustAnswer regularly field questions such as:


  • I have a bump on the inside of my cheek. Do you think it’s just a canker, or should I see my dentist?
  • I want to replace my bridge because it has moved. Could this be fixed, and how much will it hurt?
  • Which material is best for a crown, and what is a good price for a root canal?
  • I have a bad abscessed tooth and my dentist ordered Keflex 500 mg BID, which I think isn't enough. I think I should be taking it more like 4 times daily. What can I do?
  • I had a root canal and a temporary filling put into a tooth. How likely is it that putting a crown on this tooth would stop it from being pressure sensitive?

Before you speak to a dentist online, you'll need to provide some information. So that the dental Expert can provide you with the best advice, you should be ready to answer a few questions such as:


  • When was your last visit to the dentist?
  • Have you had any irregular checkups?
  • Anything else in your medical history you think the dentist should know?

With this information, you'll be ready for a constructive session with the Expert.
