Yes!: Of course this depends upon you; however, for most all people there is very little reason why you could not go to work. We all know those who do not go to work even if they just feel tired or have perhaps sniffles. Truly, much depends upon your own willingness to work and perhaps mental toughness. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Immediatelyl: Generally, if everything went well with the root canal therapy it would be a good idea to start immediately with the fabrication of a crown. Only when the prognosis might be guarded due to a number of reasons, would it be wise to make sure the rct is successful prior to making a crown for the tooth (just in case the rct fails). Discuss this with your own dentist. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

What should I do when i go to a dentist for a cracked tooth root and the want to do a root canal ?
Extent of crack: A cracked tooth will be evaluated to see if it it is limited to only the crown, or if it extends vertically into the root of the tooth. They can sometimes be very tricky to detect and treat. Be sure to ask the dentist about all the options, if the extent of the crack is clear, and how confident they are about the recommended treatment if they want to save the tooth. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: Root canal treatment is done when a tooth is infected or if the nerve is irreversibly inflamed. If you have a strong, constant dull ache or pain to cold that lingers for several minutes, then you likely need root canal treatment. If your tooth is only sensitive when you eat something sweet or if you have cold pain for a few seconds, you may only need a filling. Have your dentist check it for you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Needing expert help. I have root canal done 50hour ago. Can i smoke or it will lead to an tooth infection?
Immediately: You should not have to wait to return to work after root canal treatment. You may be numb for a while, so be careful not to bite your cheek or lip. Pain should be controlled with over the counter Ibuprofen or acetaminaphen. If you were sedated (general anesthesia or "twilight sleep")during the root canal treatment, you should not drive and probably wait till the next day to return to work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I went to the endodontics to get treatment on a infected root canal. Does it take up to two years for the infection to go away?
RCT infection: If the rct was completed, the infection should be gone within a few weeks at most. However, if you are referring to a radiolucency on the x-ray, it may take up to 3-4 months for complete bone fill. If it's 2 years and still a problem, discuss options such as retreatment, apico or extraction. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Need root canal. How long can it wait? I was given antibiotics for infection. No money- can I wait a month to get the root canal?
As : As you know antibiotics were given to you to control the infection and while taken them your root canal is supposed to be performed. Now if you have or need to wait one month, you will need to take again antibiotics two to three days prior to your procedure. I hope you will be pain free during this waiting period. Now let me inform you that, your infection will not be resolved until the root canal will be finished, and all bacteria coming from that infection will not only remain in that tooth area but will be traveling through your body ( brain, lungs, heart, kidneys etc). Please try to prioritize your budget and have your root canal done asap, and if you want to wait a month for your build up and crown, that will be more reasonable. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
