Avatar m tn I use inter-dental brushes soaked in mouth wash and I spend a fortune on all sorts of tooth and gum washes. I have to suck mints continuously.

Avatar m tn I would consult with your endodontist and see what they say. They opened the tooth and saw what was going on inside. Your general dentist can do that also.

If the decay isn't bad and the bridge seems fine, then placing a filling in there would work as well.
