Q.

Wortelkanaal

Ek het nou al 2 keer wortelkanaal behandeling op 1 van my tande gehad. Die laaste keer was ongeveer ''n maand gelede. Die tand het ''n abses gevorm en die pyn was ondraaglik. Ek ervaar nou weer drukking op dieselfde tand (simptome is dieselfde as die keer toe die abses gevorm het).
1. Wat staan my te doen? Is die beter oplossing om die tand te trek?
2. Indien ''n wortelkanaal weer gedoen moet word, moet die ontsteking eers behandel word voor die kanaal weer gedoen word - ek kan nie weer deur daardie pyn gaan nie.
3. Is dit nodig om weer ''n kanaalbehandeling te doen - is daar nie ''n ander alternatief nie?
