Could I Go Back To Work Right After A Root Canal
Yes!: Of course this depends upon you; however, for most all people there is very little reason why you could not go to work.

Truly, much depends upon your own willingness to work and perhaps mental toughness. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

You : You asked a very good question. And there are a few different ways to answer your question. Many times a tooth requires root canal therapy due to large filling which damage the nerve. Teeth that have had root canal therapy become brittle, and if they have large restorations, it is better to put a crown (cap) on the tooth to help protect it. The color of the porcelain would match your own teeth, so appearance would not be a problem. If, however, the nerve was damaged due to trauma, but the tooth structure is sound and there is no need for a crown, a different approach can be tried. The dark color is coming from the inside, not from the outside. Your dentist can try to bleach the tooth from the inside with a liquid agent called superoxol. This may lighten the color to your satisfaction. The solution will be changed a few times over the course of a few weeks. It's worth a try. Ask your dentist what he/she would advise is best for this particular tooth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
