I'm having a root canal retreatment done, second appointment is on Mon. Top of temp. filling fell out tonight, Can I wait until next app.?.
I had a root canal a week ago and the temp filling has fallen out. The tooth was already broken. Am i ok to wait 2 days to see my dentist?
Temp filling: Some drug stores sell over the counter temporary fillings that you can try. Since the root canal seal is far below the surface of the tooth, there is little danger of infecting the tooth from the lost filling assuming you have an appointment in the near future to restore the tooth permanently. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My endodontist left root canal camber open after a 2nd visit due to interappointment flare-up, and i'm on medrol/amoxicillin/vicodin now. What should I expect? Will i get reinfected by leaving root canal open? Please help! thx!
Cotton if concerned: The endodontist is trying to prevent pressure from building inside the canal and causing you pain. If you are having a problem with food getting caught in the opening, you can place a small piece of cotton from the tip of a swab in the hole, which will prevent a seal, but keep debris out. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

See Endodontist: 95% of upper molars have 4 canals. The missed canal is called the mb2 canal. Microscopically trained endodontists are adept at finding and treating this problem. I suggest you see one asap. In the future, suggest to your dentist you want to see a specialist. You are in control of your treatment! ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
Just had a root canal finished yesterday. Had 4 canals filled. Need to go back next week to get fitted for a crown. How do I brush my teeth with the f?
I recently had a root canal, but am unable to afford the crown. How long do I have until i loose the tooth? My root canal was at the end of feb. I had a temporary filling, but my insurance ran out before i could pay for the crown.
That : That would depend on which tooth it was, the condition of the tooth itself, and your bite. A tooth that is in the front of the mouth that does not contact any teeth when you bite could last many years without a crown. A tooth in the back of the mouth like a molar that you bite against and had a large cavity and/or multiple fillings in it prior to having root can break in a few weeks. You need to see your dentist and talk to him or her about your situation. If the tooth is vulnerable, you may be able to have a temporary crown made to protect the tooth for several months until you can afford the permanent crown. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Immediately after i got the crown, my tooth started paining so my dr did root canal through the crown and filled it. Why she did not put a new crown ?
Reasons vary: It is not uncommon that recent root canal therapy remains painful to the tooth. The tooth may need as long as a year to heal from the therapy, so it is common that a dentist simply fills the hole and monitor before placing a new crown. The tissue under the tooth could swell and the crown may need to be reshaped, so a new crown later may not be a bad idea. Ask your dr about your specific situation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My dentist placed biodentine as temporary filling. Days after, it hurts. It's like my tooth will fall. What will I do?Do I need to undergo root canal?
I got a root canal done years ago. The temporary filling fell out and never got replaced. Now I have infection. I am on amoxicillin. Its day 3 and my tooth still hurts. When will the pain go away?
When problem solved: We have no way of knowing if your root canal therapy was ever completed? Quality of the treatment? Recurrent infection? Fractured root? Adjacent tooth? Gum infection? Etc. Etc. I suggest a few things: first, see your dentist to go over your options for this particular problem. Second, follow the recommendations. Third, learn from your experience and get all your treatment done in a timely fashion. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I got an old root canal retreated this past tues due to abscess. Dr put meds and temp crown on it til appt in 2 wks. Abscess seems worse. Normal?
Endo retreatment: Whenever a n old root canal is retreated, it is normal for the tooth to be more sensitive than before. The removal of the root canal filling is more laborious that taking out the pulp tissues. It is always possible to take the files outside of the root into the surrounding bone and cause some post op pain. Continue the medication as prescribed and check back with the dentist if symptoms worsen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a post filling put on a root canaled tooth a month ago. Today, the filling fell out. I've got a dental appt on Friday. Is it safe to wait?
Not for us: Generally you should be OK. But this is not really for us to decide. Only your Dentist knows what's going on in your mouth. Call your Dentist, report what happened, and ask if you can wait until your regular appointment or if they feel you should be seen sooner. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
I had my molar crowned first, and did root canal from bottom of crown, because of infection, pain etc. After root canal, when do I know it went well?
About a week: A root canal from the bottom is typically done only after a conventional root canal treatment had been done. This procedure is called an apicoectomy. If this is your case, then your symptoms should resolve within a week. If a root canal was not done on that molar previously, you may want to see a specialist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
