Why would a tooth under a dental bridge go bad?
I had a bridge put in about 9 months ago. It is in the back right side of my mouth. I had a tooth pulled from a root canal that failed, so my dentist talked me into a bridge. I have been back for this same bridge about 7 or 8 times. Maybe more....First for the temporary bridge and impressions, then the temporary bridge had rough spots on it, 2 times for that. When the permanent bridge came in, it did not fit properly the first 2 times, since finally getting the permanent bridge, I have been back at least four times because I kept telling him it hurt to bit down on anything in that area. My dentist just kept smoothing the area by grinding down some. He kept acting like it was all in my head. NOW, I am starting to have a ache in my jaw without chewing and when I try to move the bridge there is pain.......Help! ?? If something did go wrong, should I have to pay for another one??

i have a bridge & have never had that kind of trouble. take a little mirror & look all around the area of the bridge...see if the supports of the bridge that wrap around the other teeth are digging into the gums at all. that can be a source of pain when biting. also, see if the top of the bridge is at a higher level than the teeth next to it...if so, biting down will force the bridge tooth into the gum & cause pain that way. look also for any signs of decay on the surrounding teeth (take the bridge out for this one) & see if there are brown stains where the bridge supports usually sit...that would mean decay has started. look at the gums again...any redness there that isn't anywhere else on the gums? could be sign of infection. if you find errors of fitting or infection, you'll need to go back for proper treatment. if you think this dentist won't pay attention, then perhaps it's time to find another one, someone who works with false teeth a lot. they'll want to talk to the current dentist for records, but that's ok. they need to know what was done. you surely shouldn't have to keep going back with continued problems. i've always had wonderful dentists. there are some very good ones out there who are creative & care about their patients.

there is probably an infection in the gum line the inside of our teeth can only be protected so much by the outside if theres an infection on the inside so the bridge wouldn't help that much anyway if you haven't already had a root canal on that tooth it probably needs one which will eventually lead to a dead tooth anyway. a replacement tooth might be the way to go with this one and will probably save u several trips to the dentist. good luck theres nothing worse then a tooth ache i think i'd rather give birth.lol get better soon
