If a molar has an abscess must it be pulled? Why can't a root canal be done and the tooth capped if the abscess has been cured with antibiotics?

Hi Huxlly! I have the EXACT same thing!!!! This is so weird! I have to go on Thursday for them to see if the infection has gone, then they will see if the crack is all the way down to the root, IF it is then they will take the tooth, if it isn't then they will do a root canal! So I sumise that this is what they are doing for you! Due to the abcess it has probably cracked your tooth right down and needs to be pulled as it can't be saved! PLUS depending on whear you live your insurance might not cover a total reconstruction! so that is why! Good luck to both of us! I am NOT looking forward to this!!!
