Can You Drink After A Root Canal
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 more

Likely Yes: If you don't have any pain, and have not been prescribed any antibiotics, you can drink alcohol. Just make sure that you stay away from biting on that tooth until you get the permanent restoration (crown). Specially, be careful if you have a few too many drinks and forget that you should not be biting on the tooth. Of course, it is not very healthy to have a few too many drinks ;-). ...Read more
Is this ?Or answer:
If you are drinking alcohol after root canal treatment and are taking any pain meds you should NOT be drinking alcohol because it may accentuate the effects of the pain pills.
If dr had to drain or treat any bubble you may have had on the side of your gums it could sting.

I had a root canal last summer. Now that tooth is causing pain. It hurts to breathe air in through my mouth, eat from that side, or drink. I thought since the roots were gone, it could not hurt. What could be wrong?
Root canal : Even tho there is no nerve in the tooth depending on how many canals were found when the root canal was done there can still be a extra canal, fracture , decay under the crown , tooth got re-infected or a different tooth in the same area that can all be possible reasons why you my still be having pain. ...Read more
I got 2 root canals and fillings, but there is still pain in my tooth when i eat hot food and drink cold drinks. Why?
New filling?: A tooth that has had a filling placed recently can be sensitive to thermal changes...Especially if the filling was amalgam (silver).

I had a temporary crown put in after a root canal about 1 and 1/2 years ago and have not gotten the permanent crown put in. Is this bad?
Only if...: It's only bad if you mind losing the tooth. Temporary crowns are just that, temporary. They are not designed to last more than a very short time. Greatest risk is leakage of the sealing material between the cap and the tooth, allowing bacteria to get under the crown and destroy the tooth. Please see your dentist asap. ...Read more
