Not always: Molar tooth extraction can be simple with no surgery involved in many cases.

Also most unerupted and impacted third molars will need surgery to extract. ...Read moreSee 4 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
No: It is normal to wear out some of the temporary filling. However, it is not good to have the temporary filling completely out. Once the inside of the tooth is exposed to contaminants like saliva, bacteria and food, root canal will become contaminated and eventually leak. Go back to your dentist right the way to have it checked. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Lots of reasons: Could be the sore tooth has issues that need to be addressed, such as cavity, split, etc. Could be referred pain from the root canal treated tooth as the infection clears and the area heals.

Probably a simple fix. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
No: A crown is not always required after a root canal. After a root canal, a tooth becomes more brittle and more likely to break. A crown helps prevent the tooth from breaking. If you decide not to get a crown placed on the tooth then you are taking a chance of losing that tooth although you spent the time and money doing the root canal. Take your dentist's advise. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I did root canal through the gold crown, permenant fillings were done by dr i did not know. Is root canal final sealing same as regular filling?
Is root canaled crown teeth supposed to feel same as none root canaled crown teeth? My root canaled crown teeth bit different, uncomfortable 9 months
Thanks for asking!: A fillings most important function is to be leak proof. When the tooth is prepared for a filling not all of the bacteria is removed. Some are still hiding in the tooth structure and will continue to decay the tooth at a slower rate when covered by the filling because there is little to no oral fluids leaking in to feed the bugs. In time the bugs win again and then you get a root canal and crown. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers

After the Root Canal: For small access entry in front teeth a composite filling will be enough to protect the tooth.

Good luck. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers

Crown Retention: Sometimes, tooth decay can result in the removal of a significant amount of tooth structure above the root and surrounding bone. A small amount of the bone around the tooth can be removed to expose more healthy tooth structure in order for the crown to fit better, and to prevent gum irritation issues down the road. This is a fairly common and minor procedure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
