Q.

broken tooth

My back right lower tooth broke in half. The funny thing is that I didnt feel any pain. However now about 2 weeks later I feel pain when I am chewing, I cant even chew using my right side anymore, Do i need a root canal, or do I have an absecss. What do you think is wrong. The tooth seems to be eroding away

It is impossible for me to tell you if you have an abscess without examing or seeing the tooth. A root canal would be an option depending on the state of the tooth etc.
You need to have an xray taken.
