Could I Go Back To Work Right After A Root Canal
Sure...: You can go back to work just like having general dental work done. The only real hard part would be if you need to speak...And you are numb it may be a little difficult or if you need to eat that might be a little hard to do also. But yes, by all means you can indeed go back to work a huge majority of the time. Most all endodontists are very good at what they do and make it a good experience. ...Read more

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 more
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 more

Will zoom whitening help whiten a tooth that has darkened after a root canal? I know the take-home trays don't, but since this stuff is stronger and uses a light to really get it working, I was hoping it might work? I'm worried about whitening my other te
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 more

Had root canal taking 500mg moxocillen 3 time daily should I take all of them before going back for crown?
Finish antibiotic: You should always finish the antibiotic perscription. Don't stop taking it once you feel better or the procedure is done. Finish it. I have many patients who don't finish an antibiotic and then the infection is not gone and it will come back and be harder to treat the next time. ...Read more
Help please? I had root canal 5 years back, since last night its again hurting. Don't want to go through that pain again, so any home remedies?
When comfortable: If you speak a lot at work, you may wish to wait until after the numbness has worn off, but otherwise, it should be no different than when you have fillings done. Return when you are comfortable, either right after treatment or later, when you feel no numbness. This is, of course if you have had no sedation other than nitrous oxide, which is flushed out before leaving the office. ...Read more
Should: Typically, root canal treatment does not have physical activities as a contraindication. However, it is best to let your dentist or endodontist (root canal doctor) know about your plan to exercise. Everyone's case is different, and everyone's workout activity varies greatly: you may be given a more customized post-treatment advice once your doctor knows what you are planning to do. ...Read more

I'm going for a root canal done on my tooth and having a crown fitted. How does the procedure work?
No: Root canal treatments, just like everything else have a failure rate. Nothing is a 100% guarantee. Even the best dentists have failures due to conditions out of their control. Root canals however can work great and are usually a good option to save a tooth. Ask you dentist about it and ask what, if any, options there are. ...Read more
