I have had so much Dental work, the latest is a 5 tooth bridge on upper left side.
My anchor tooth was a healthy no filling or cavity tooth. My Dentist had trouble and three bridges later, I have been wearing several different temp cemented bridges for over a 6 months , my anchor tooth now became Sensitive to sweet food for a couple of days. My dentist has now put in my new bridge, with temp cement, tooth now feels almost better. The bridge actual feels good, she may have finally got it right.

Dentist wants to root canal it now, Second opinion Dentist says cement it in permanently, they both took xrays.

I think my dentist that did the bridge is a little root canal happy, As soon as I'm over this, I'm going to the new Dentist.
I have just had no luck with this dentist, snowball effect with every problem.
Should I cement it in Permanently, And hope that the tooth just needs time to rest. If enodontis needed to, he could just go thru bridge to due yet another root canal.
Why do a root canal when theres a chance it may be ok???
