Do Root Canal Work Cause Insomnia Problem
My mom has diabetes went to dentist for treatment of infection so they did root canal on molars in lower jaw, suffering with headache cannot sleep?
Is root canal safe? Will it cause any health problems? Any tips on how to find the right dentist to do the job?
If a root canal is performed & the filling that was placed to fill the drill spot isn't fully filled, can that cause problems?
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. So there is usually no pain or problem to the tooth itself from having a drink
RCT/sinusitis?: Yes it is uncommon but can and does happen. Should be evaluated by both an Endodontist and ENT specialist.See 4 more doctor answers
Cold test on tooth, recently filled, hurt a lot, but nothing else indicates a problem. Do I need a root canal, or could it be something else?
I started root canal a year ago but haven't completed it yet what precaution can I take to avoid disease at present. It isn't causing me any problem?
Wait and watch: An root canal should be finished in close proximity to the time that it was started. Leaving it half completed is like waiting for the time bomb to go off. Since the nerve is no longer present, chances are the pain is less, but the source of the original infection is probably still present. See your dentist asap.See 2 more doctor answers
Go back: See your dentist and have it re evaluated. If done recently it may be hitting heavy on your tooth causing you the discomfort. If it's been awhile the tooth could be cracked. Any diagnosis needs an evaluation and x-ray.See 1 more doctor answer
I had a root canal a few weeks ago and am scheduled for my crown or permanent filling tomorrow. I have a flight tomorrow evening. Is this a problem?
Shouldn't Be Problem: Since the root canal treatment removed the nerve & especially infection, there is little left to cause issue. You will probably leave with a temp crown so avoid sticky foods until final crown is delivered (usually 2-3 weeks). Be sure to tell your dentist first though and they might give you Magic Mouthwash to rinse with since the gum can be irritated after the crown prep is complete.See 2 more doctor answers

Some: Some post op pain may be normal but it is impossible to know without seeing you--which is why you should call your dentist for a follow up to evaluate your issue.See 2 more doctor answers
Not sure...: I am not sure I understand your question. If there is an infection problem associated with a root canal procedure you had done I would call the dentist who performed the procedure to have it managed. If you have an infection and have not pursued care for it then I would call your dentist. A personal visual exam would provide you the best information for how to progress from here....See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Injuries to the tooth that involve the pulp (nerve) require root canal treatment. This could include deep cavities, broken teeth, gum infections that travel under the tooth to the pulp. There are even times when prosthetic treatment can dictate the need for an intentional root canal treatment.See 2 more doctor answers
See an endodontist: Without any specifics, the best suggestion I can make is to see a specialist who just does root canal - an endodontist. You may even want to consider going to one of the dental schools in Texas and have the professors who teach endodontics, evaluate your problems. Good luck!See 2 more doctor answers
RCT failures: 1. Rct retreatment- especially when the tooth is otherwise healthy & the rct filling (s) appear less than ideal on x-rays. 2. Apicoectomy-especially when the tooth is otherwise healthy, and an infection or cyst present. 3. Extraction-when the tooth has poor bone support, periodontal disease, fragile, lacks adequate healthy tooth structure, calcified canals, short roots, root or crown fracture, etc.See 3 more doctor answers
I had root canal 2 years ago, 3 dentists looked at Xray and say it's fine. Problem is when it touches food etc it is so painful, what should I do?
Endodontist: Find an Endodontist who has a CBCT unit to further evaluate the tooth and bone. This is a CT scan unit. With it we can often see things not visible clinically or with traditional x-ray imaging. Often there is a crack that does not (yet) show up. See Prosthodontist for tx options should you decide to have the tooth extracted. Get clinical exam. Good Luck.See 5 more doctor answers
Had root canal done (#7) 5days ago. No problem or pain till now. Sharp pain when I tap, apply pressure or accidently touches another tooth. Is this no?
Reevaluation: You may have residual infection if auxiliary canals were not fully obliterated. You may have fracture of the tooth. Return to your treating Dentist or specialist Endodontists for reevaluation.See 4 more doctor answers
Root canal or tooth extraction and health. What are chronic problems associated with root canals or tooth extractions?
Usually none.: Usually no chronic problems are associated with root canal therapy. However, if you extract a tooth & do not replace it, then you may have drifting, shifting, and malocclusion of your other teeth. This could be considered a chronic complication of unreplaced extracted teeth. If root canals are done properly and subsequently restored, chronic conditions are not normally found. Take care...See 1 more doctor answer
