You : You should go to a dentist and have an x-ray and examination of your tooth. The dentist will tell you if there is any hope for the tooth. In your description - you mentioned that the tooth is loose - that makes me think that the chances for saving the tooth are not good. Please seek treatment right away - an abscess is a bacterial infection. It can make you quite sick and cause a lot of pain. ...Read more

Tooth pain in several teeth from just heat and x-rays came out negative. I have deep fillings on one of my teeth. Do i need a root canal?

Tooth pain in several teeth from just heat and x-rays came out negative. I have deep fillings on one of my teeth. Do i need a root canal?

Yes and No: You need a root canal if one or more of your teeth have irreversible nerve inflammation, or if the tooth or teeth are dead or dying. You don't need a root canal if the pain-causing inflammation is reversible. You may need to replace the deep filling with a sedative liner and a new filling. You may also need to do a bite adjustment. You should probably see an endodontist for a 2nd opinion. ...Read more

Will losing temporary filling after root canal ok?

Will losing temporary filling after root canal ok?

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 more

I just got a deep filling done and i'm having non stop pain for almost 2 days. Is this normal? How can I stop the pain? Do i need to get a root canal?

Not normal...: I would call the dentist's office. They understand your particulars and may assist you in problem-solving. Some potential problems may be that the filling could require some adjustment if it is too high, or the nerve within the tooth may be adversely affected. I would not jump to conclusions; i would discuss this and be evaluated by your dentist. ...Read more
