See the Dentist: The dentist needs to check for 3 general possibilities: 1) there is still infection at the end of the root where the root canal was done. 2) the crown is higher than the rest of the teeth and you are biting on this tooth first. 3) the root may be split. ...Read more

My crown came out from tooth n19 and part the tooth came out with it (tooth part longer than crown, root canal done on tooth), What are my options?

Best option is: see your dentist for evaluation, x-rays and treatment. Most dentists are committed to helping patients save their natural teeth. However, if a tooth cannot be saved, most of the time a replacement must be planned for to maintain a person’s smile, function and chewing ability. ...Read more

What makes teeth break and come out after root canals?

They become brittle: Endodontically treated teeth become brittle and can fracture because there is no longer a blood supply to nourish the tooth. After root canal treatment the tooth still has to be restored so it can bear chewing pressure without breaking. A crown is usually the recommended restoration. ...Read more

I had teeth #14, crowned, root canalled, 3 roots are cleaned, sealed through bottom of crown, still sore.Can 4th canal spread back to 3, 2, 1 if ..Is?

I had teeth #14, crowned, root canalled, 3 roots are cleaned, sealed through bottom of crown, still sore.Can 4th canal spread back to 3, 2, 1 if ..Is?

No, but: This needs to be checked by your own dentist. It could be an incomplete or failed root canal therapy, a fracture of the crown or root, or simple the tooth is sore from contacting your other teeth prematurely, requiring a simple bite adjustment to resolve. If all normal clinical and radiographic tests fail to diagnose the problem, you might consider a cbct (3d image) to figure out the cause. ...Read more

Crowned tooth pain/possible missed 4 canal from root canal 2 years ago i had a root canal and a crown. When i finally settled on my current dentist (for insurance network reasons) i had a root canal and crown. The first 2 dentists said i had a 4th root so

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 more

My fillings fallen out but it had a root canal will it hurt later?

My fillings fallen out but it had a root canal will it hurt later?

It could: Not at first. However once the root canal is exposed to your saliva it could get reinfected. Some studies say it could take 30 days to get re contaminated and thus more prone to infection. If it gets reinfected it could cause you pain. Lastly, if the filling is out it may mean the hole in the tooth is to big for just a filling and would be better off with a crown. ...Read more

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 more

Upper molar crowned, root canaled, if soreness is, due to bite (unprofessional) only, can it still get infected? Assuming root canal was successful.

Upper molar crowned, root canaled, if soreness is, due to bite (unprofessional) only, can it still get infected?  Assuming root canal was successful.

Residual pain: If the root canal was very recent, it is common for the tooth to have residual pain, which should subside. If the the bite is off, a simple adjustment should take care of it. Don't be to quick to throw your gp under the bus! go back and have it evaluated. Good luck. ...Read more

If I had crown removed, decay removed, root canal, new crown, and decay wasnt totally gone, what happens?

Future failure: If there is remaing decay under a new crown, it can continue to progress and deteriorate the remaining tooth structure. Since a root canal has already been performed, the nerve inside the tooth is missing. Therefore, the decay can continue to destroy the tooth, without any pain sensation or sensory feedback. Then one day, without warning, the crown can fallout, leaving an unrestorable tooth. ...Read more
