Bad pain in tooth two months after root canal and crown. Will they make me pay again? No insurace now.

Bad pain in tooth two months after root canal and crown. Will they make me pay again? No insurace now.

Depends: It actually depends on your dentists policy. Since the problem occurred so soon after the original work was completed i would hope that it would mean that you would not have to pay again for either a re-treatment or extraction. Be aware that this would only apply if the original treating dentist attends to the problem. If he sends you to a specialist then that person is entitled to be reimbursed. ...Read more

Tooth pain started 3 weeks after perm crown. Dentist: wait, see if the nerves correct themselves. Root canal? Wait? Heat hurts and can't chew food

RCT: Sensitivity to heat is especially a classic sign of nerve involvement and the need for root canal therapy. Pain on biting pressure can be merely the bite being high and the need to adjust the bite. However, both symptoms combined along with the course of events that you describe would make the need for rct very likely. I think 3 weeks is long enough to wait for resolution. See your dentist now. ...Read more
