Tooth on bottom toward front has small hole in it throbbing. Can it have a root canal or does it have to be pulled.

Internet Diagnosis: For the most part, teeth with severe decay will respond to root canal therapy.

4) bite trauma (clenching/grinding)

Pressure: You have inflammation (and most likely an infection) at the tip of the root. When your blood pressure in that region increases (bending over, lying down, exercising) you feel the blood flowing through the tissues with every heartbeat... that's why it throbs. You are on the verge of a major dental issue with unbearable pain... please call a dentist ASAP for an appointment ...Read more

Had a root canal 3weeks ago and still have very minor throbbing in the tooth. The sensitivity to the hot/cold is gone though. Is this normal?

RC Therapy: Yes. All RC treated teeth have a 'bruise' in the bone that holds the tooth in. Chewing on this tooth pushes the root down into the the sore bone... this hurts a little or sometimes a lot. Ask your Doc for meds to reduce this imflamation or "bruise". They might even have you come in to have the tooth adjusted a bit so you don't bit into it so hard. OBTW don't delay getting the "cap". ...Read more

Can't afford: I'm sorry, there is no OTC cure. Tooth is probably infected. Analgesic and/or antibiotic will only temporarily dampen the pain as the infection spreads. The more it spreads, the harder to treat, the more dangerous to other organ system, and the more extensive and expensive treatment becomes. Please don't put off treatment. ...Read more

There are very few emergencies when someone seeks continuing dental care. ...Read more
