A 38-year-old member asked:

Temporary filling fell out after root canal, what can I do?

Get it fixed!: Root canal treatment must be followed up with a definitive restoration of the tooth. A leak into the root canal filling could cause a failure of the root canal treatment. Also, teeth that have had root canal treatment are more likely to break and must have a strong final restoration placed to help prevent this.
