got a rear lower tooth that cracked a couple of years ago.
It left a bit of tooth and both roots in place, but i left it alone (hate dentists).
Now, 10 days ago it became infected In the cavity left from the broken bit. This spread up to my ear, chest, neck and lips.
I went to the dentist and they couldnt do anythjng because of the infection and gave me a course of antibiotics.
This had, i thought, cleared my infection and i plucked up courage to visit the dentist today to have it pulled.
No joy. There is an infection still there (more meds), and i had 4 or 5 (whatever the max allowed is), pain killing / numbing injections into the area, but it wouldnt budge, and also the pain was huge despite the injections.
Being the coward i am, any suggestions regarding further treatment please thats less trouble and pain?
