Black tooth under temp crown, is it tooth decay?

Black tooth under temp crown, is it tooth decay?

It All Depends: All other answers are valid. However, I'd like to add that if the temp crown was recently placed while you're waiting for a permanent crown, the black coloration can be from bacteria getting through the temp crown. It's a result of not having a good seal with the temp crown and usually not a cavity. You commonly see this if the temp crown has been in place for some time where the seal is bad. ...Read more

I've been seizures free for 4years but still on medication until now. Is there any risk of inhaling prosthetic crown for my rct molar tooth?

I've been seizures free for 4years but still on medication until now. Is there any risk of inhaling prosthetic crown for my rct molar tooth?

Highly unlikely: If your dentist takes appropriate precautions, it is highly unlikely that you would swallow your crown during the placement procedure, even if you were to have a seizure. Once in place, it is not meant to come off easily so there is no fear of swallowing it afterwards. A crown will only fall off by itself if something is really wrong, so make sure you keep up with your routine visits. ...Read more

I had root canal done on molar tooth.Is composite over the ceramic bridge as strong ceramic crown? Want to keep bridge if possible.thank you

Not as strong: However, it is a great alternative to replacing the bridge, especially if the bridge is fairly new and/or if the fit is still terrific. The restoration (as all restorations) needs to be monitored periodoncally for leakage and recurrent decay. If the tooth in question needed root canal therapy due to marginal decay, you should make a new bridge. ...Read more
