This case involves a patient who arrived at Tygerberg Hospital with an abscess in the 14 tooth. The patient had a bridge from the 12 to the 14. Previously a root canal was done on the 14 tooth. The patient complained of pain and irritation in the 14 region, which resulted in mastication becoming a painful process.

The different options available will be listed and from this list, the best option would be chosen, reasons for the choice will also be given.
