Q.

CROWNS/ABCESS

I have 3 crowns. Last year I had a abcess and the dentist took out the 3 old crowns , treated the abcess and then put in 3 new crowns. Now a year later I have a abcess again. Can the abcess be treated without taking out the crowns. I don''t want to go though that process again. Plus it is very expensive.

If a root canal is needed, it can sometimes be doen by drilling though the crown without having to remove it.
