Root Canal Temporary Filling Fell Out
Temp filling: Some drug stores sell over the counter temporary fillings that you can try.

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
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
My new molar crown, infected, root canalled by hole, temporary filling fall out, so went different dr, is filling method same, if root canalled or not?
Is this the problem?: 1) you had a new crown placed on one of your molars (was this a replacement for a previous crown that failed?) 2) infection then occurred, they did a root canal treatment& placed a temp filling which fell out 3) you went to new dentist, this treatment is possible: remove current crown, build up tooth & place new crown. Or if the crown is intact with just a small hole, fill hole up with composite. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

Possible ?: Possible? Yes. Likely? No. In the hands of an experienced dentist and with proper precautions, the risk of this is very small. Any time a drill is used on teeth, there is always a risk of inflammation and irreversible damage to the nerve of the tooth. More often, the tooth would have required root canal therapy anyway due to previous decay or dental treatment. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

My dentist recomends root canal and crown treatment after cavity filling caused extreme throbbing pain. Is this better than tooth extraction?
Oral Surgery: Go see a dentist that has the qualifications to remove the broken root. This can be a difficult surgery. I would recommend treating it soon before you get an infection. I would also recommend doing a graft after the root is removed which will help preserve the remaining bone. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Back teeth should be: Back teeth (not incisors or canines) that have been root canal treated should have crowns because a root canal treated tooth will become brittle and weaker over time. If a premolar or molar is not crowned, it will inevitably break & may result in tooth loss. Front teeth should be crowned if the tooth was badly broken, is discolored, or if the dentist feels it is susceptible to breakage. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Did the dentist made a hole through the top of your crown to do the root canal? If so then, and the rest of the crown is ok and there is no decay anywhere else on the tooth, a filling can be placed in the hole that was made to do the root canal. After the years pass by, this crown may need to be replace or the fillng replaced depending on how it holds up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
