Gum boil or pimple on gum
I had done my root canal before 1year and the same tooth got broken later before 2-3 months. Now i saw a boil on my gum just below the broken teeth. What step to be taken now? Surely I will visit doctor but I want to know details.

Dear, as you mentioned that a boil is present in relation to tooth, that means most probably the RCT has been failed. Now, you may have to go for either reRCT or extraction of the tooth. Visit your dentist asap.

Good Evening dear.Well according to your complain it seems ur RCT has been failed . A xray has to be taken to evaluate the path of infection.Consult ur dentist and get it evaluate whether it can be saved by Re-RCT and once infection subsides get the crown over it.
