Root canal or tooth extraction and health. What are chronic problems associated with root canals or tooth extractions?

Usually none.

Root_canal
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...

Are pulp capping and root canals the same thing? I've read that pulp capping might be a less painful alternative to a root canal. Are they really the same thing, or do they just have a similar result? .

They

They are not the same. A pulp cap is just a small,temporary coverage of a root canal exposure. A root canal is the complete cleaning,shaping and sterilizing of the entire root canal system. A pulp cap is only used in very specialized situations. Therefore they do not do the same thing or have similar results

Dr. Jason D. Muck answered:

Is a bicuspidization similar to a root canal? I'm going to have a bicuspidization done in order to save my tooth, but the procedure sounds similar to what I know about root canals. Are they the same thing? .

Root

Root canal therapy is a portion of the bicuspidization procedure. When a multi-rooted tooth has decay involving the furcation of the roots (where they split), the molar can be "covnverted" into two bicuspids (single rooted teeth), This requires separating the two roots. By sectioning the tooth, the nerve is severed. Therefore, the never needs to be removed and root canal therapy performed. Typically after sectioning and root canal therapy, single crowns are placed on each of the roots.

Root Canals.. safe or not? #NQLU I have heard that it is better for your health to get a bridge instead of a root canal. The reason being dead matter is dead matter, and it breeds decay and infection, so best to not do it. Is this true?

Root canals

Stringio
Infections in a root are worse, what are your options? are you going to place an Implant? than you have a titanium screw in your body (some people say that's bad too). or a bridge, than you have to shave down two more teeth. Don't listen to everything you hear, everyone and every case is different. Ask you Dentist to take an x-ray and see if there is an abscess present than see your options.

Could having a cleaning and immediately following a bleaching of my teeth cause an abscess resulting in 2 root canals? I have recently had these 2 procedures back to back and am now undergoing 2 root canal procdures. Could this have been caused by the bl

No relation

There is no relation, it's actually recommended that you get the whitening after cleaning . Whether this teeth had a cavity (decayed) or had a poor fitting old filling,the nerve had to be infected or necrotic ( dead) for the teeth to need root canal treatment . In rare cases the whining gel might irritate that old filling if its in the front teeth causing the symptoms to appear ,RX in needed.

Will I have to have regular root canals after I have the first one? I've read that crowns last for 7-10 years, and when they need to be replaced I might need another root canal on the same tooth. Is this true? Will I have to look forward to a new root can

Vancouver, First,

Vancouver, First, quality crowns with proper care should last much longer. And not all teeth need a root canal if a crown is replaced, my experience is most don't. Like, crowns or goal is a life time but 30 to 40 years works too. If a root canal fails, which does occur, it is critical to determine why failure occurred. This is the key to determining what the best course of action is; re-root canal, apico (treatment through the gums), or extraction. Hope this is helpful, Michael I.

Dr. Zahid Ahmed answered:

Had 1st step of rootcanal done today, gum is swollen around tooth. he cleaned + put temp filling in the canal. some pain. is this normal?

Maybe

Open-uri20130501-2332-ivm3q8
It is not unreasonable to have some soreness or even tissue irritation around the tooth immediately after a root canal. It mostly depends on the state of the tooth before the root canal and the procedures and techniques completed. Follow the instructions the Dr gave you closely, take any prescriptions as directed. Contact them if it doesn't improve. This is especially true if you develop swelling.

What do root canals feel like?

Like fillings

Now days root canals done by an experienced Endodontist can be done in 1 visit microscopically. Only a very small numberof root canals cause any pain. Don't be fearful, it will go well.

Dr. Steven Corben answered:

How painful are root canals?

Shouldn't be!!!

Root_canal
Root canal therapy or endodontic therapy is usually not painful if the proper anesthetic is used and infection is under control. Discuss your concerns with your dentist ahead of time.
