However you should never rule out the possibility of having more cavities on the opposing arch as well as the adjacent teeth causing this pain or possible infection. It would be wise to call your dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can you have a dental bridge in the lower jaw first molar when there's bone loss in the gap of missing tooth?
