How Long Can I Wait Before Having A Retreatment Done On A Root Canel With A Infection

Should I have a severe toothache after a 4 root canal procedure on a mauler and if so, for how long?
Need root canal. How long can it wait? I was given antibiotics for infection. No money- can I wait a month to get the root canal?
As : As you know antibiotics were given to you to control the infection and while taken them your root canal is supposed to be performed. Now if you have or need to wait one month, you will need to take again antibiotics two to three days prior to your procedure. I hope you will be pain free during this waiting period. Now let me inform you that, your infection will not be resolved until the root canal will be finished, and all bacteria coming from that infection will not only remain in that tooth area but will be traveling through your body ( brain, lungs, heart, kidneys etc). Please try to prioritize your budget and have your root canal done asap, and if you want to wait a month for your build up and crown, that will be more reasonable. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

RCT: Risks start as soon as the pulpectomy is finished. Normally it's a good idea to follow up with root canal therapy in about a week, especially if there was an infection present or in the works. When will the volcano erupt? Technically the need for rct is initiated when you do a pulpectomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Wait carefully: The best answer is to wait until the tooth has returned to a normal feel. This may take 2 days or 2 months, or in rare cases, never. If the tooth has delayed healing, seek evaluation by an endodontist prior to placing the crown. Always be careful to not overstress the tooth in the meantime, as it would be a shame to have it fracture. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No time limit: Correctly treated and appropriately restored, a root canal treated tooth could last a lifetime. There are other factors like regular visits to your dentist, oral hygiene, etc... That all lay a roll, but it should last longer than 10 years if you and your dentist follow conventional routine. ...Read more

Sometimes : Sometimes an extracted tooth can be replaced immediately after an extraction. More often than not, it is better to wait until the bone has filled in either partially or completely before placing an implant. There are a lot of factors to consider for example, the amount of remaining bone, whether or not there was an infection present, the type or hardness of the bone, the position of your remaining teeth, whether or not the extracted tooth is a lower or upper tooth and whether or not it is a front or back tooth. Each case has to be evaluated individually and i would suggest that you discuss this with your dentist in order to make an intelligent decision as to when to replace that missing tooth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

An abscessed: Infected tooth can demonstrate mobility. Either an endodontic lesion or a combination periodontal & endodontic lesion. Best to have definitive restoration (crown) on hold until the tooth demonstrates no further symptoms - no pain, no tenderness to percussion, no mobility. Sometime the tooth may have a poor prognosis to helpless prognosis even despite rct therapy & may still need to be removed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
