Removes the nerve: A root canal removes the nerve, blood vessels, lymphatics and other dead cells in the center of the tooth. After the root canal is done, the tooth will not be sensitive to hot, cold or sweets. The tooth needs a root canal because the "nerve" of the tooth has died, liquefied and drained to the tip of the root can has attracted bacteria. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: That's sort of like asking if a potato is similar to a vitamin supplement. Neither maca root nor fertility blend are single items (several manufacturers put those words on their labels). Neither maca root nor fertility blend are medications. They are over-the-counter supplements, which means little or no testing has been done, and nobody really knows for sure what the effects or side effects are. ...Read more
No: Any tooth structure removed during root canal therapy will not regrow. However, only a small amount of tooth structure is removed through the center of the roots. So is the pulp which is also in the canal area. The root as a whole is still functional after it is filled. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Interpret-please.mild broad-based disc bulge L5-S1 may contact S1 nerve root emerging from dural sac. 2 nerve roots don't appear compressed.
Back pain: It means the person who got this done was complaining of back pain probably with some radiation down one of the legs or perhaps even both. Symptoms of numbness, tingling, or burning pain may also be part of this picture. The MRI report is suggesting there is a bulging disc, which is not a hernia, which may be causing irritation of nerve fibers while not physically squeezing them. ...Read more

Herniated disc at L5-S1 compresses the dural sac,and lumbar canal stenosis at that area,sciatica(left leg)...do I need surgery??
A RCT extraction: RCT removes the nerve from within the tooth & in doing so prevents the transmission of sensation from the tooth when exposed to heat, cold & sweets. The outside of the tooth still has live tissue that connects it to the bone. Therefore a RCT tooth will not have more or less sensation to being extracted. HOWEVER, in all cases you will be completely numb and not feel anything & so it's a moot point. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Keep the tooth: All things considered equal, like the tooth can be restored after the root canal without any periodontal treatment, then it's always better to have the root canal and save the teeth. It allows continuing contact with the adjacent teeth to keep them from shifting, and it allows contact with the teeth in the opposite jaw and keeps them from drifting up or down which could change your bite. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If the tooth has healthy roots and surrounding periodontal tissues then a root canal treatment and a crown would be the treatment of choice. But if the tooth is infected and might have a poor prognosis , then extraction would probably be the best treatment . Your dentist would be able to give you the right advise after examination. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Upper molar crowned, root canalled(same tooth), 3 roots done by X-ray shown, still mild tooth pain always, does this mean 4th? Canal?
Perhaps..: Most upper molars only have 3 canals, but...A 4th is possible. Sometimes a tooth with a root canal needs time to calm down. I don't know what your time frames are but give it a little more time. Then go back and see the dentist that did your root canal. It might need a retreat or apicoectomy, or maybe just another round of antibiotics. Either way...I commend you...Good call. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
