Ask dentist ..: Your dentist will advise you on that depending on what he found when did xray and after actual root canal done. Pertinent things relevant may be extent of infected root, abscess, extent of manipulation with dental tools, etc. In general, i would think at least a month. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes and No: If the root canal was successful the abscess should heal by its own accord as the cause of the infection has been eradicated&this can take up to a year for complete healing of the apical area. If it persist then the tooth may be fractured. If this is the case it may have been fractured before the rct. See your dentist/see a specialist for a second opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hot Foods: Following root canal therapy, the temperature of the food is irrelevant since there is no nerve in the tooth and therefore the tooth is not sensitive to thermal stimuli. Following a surgical extraction, i would suggest that you eat temperate foods for a few days to give the tissues time to heal. Since each wound and person is different, use sound judgement for your specific situation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Absolutely: The root canal procedure eliminates the infection and the pain, but does not give immunity from decay. Even with a crown, which is commonly needed after the root canal is done, decay can occur if hygiene is not adequate. Brush, floss, and see your dentist for follow-up care. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Not a good idea: If you are taking any type of antibiotic and/or narcotic pain medication then you should not be drinking alcohol. At the least it can interfere with how well the medications will work, at the most it can make you very ill. If you are not taking any medications then alcohol will not cause nay more damage then it usually would. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Eat after root canal: I would suggest that you wait to eat hard or semi-soft things until after you anesthesia has worn off. I would also caution doing any heavy biting or chewing on the root canaled tooth until you put a permanent restoration on the tooth. Root canaled teeth tend to become brittle over time, and you could end up damaging your tooth beyond repair. Root canaled teeth can be sore up to 3 days afterwards. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
? unclear: I'm not clear on what your question is or why you are asking it? If a tooth is deemed hopeless it needs to be extracted. Many teeth can be saved with rct if restorable ; the long term prognosis is good. Once the tooth is extracted it's gone! and no other treatment is possible other than replacing it. It sounds like you need to discuss your situation with your own dentist as well as your options. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
No great answer: Teeth that are beginning w symptoms that are mild to moderate usually respond well to nsaid's. As the tooth problem matures/worsens, I have not found a medication for pain that works universally. Even narcotic rx is rarely effective to control all pain. Antibiotics may be helpful, depends on the type & scope of infective progress. Get root canal treatment asap! the best "medicine" is treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
