After a root canal&crown, I am experiencing pain (on/off)and sensitivity to hot & cold. Will I need an extraction now? Dentist is also out for 6 days.
Dentist can examine: Each root canal and crown varies in how long it lasts. If symptoms show up, the dentist will have to re-examine it before deciding on what to do next. If the dentist is out of town, and a person is in lots of pain, he can see his primary care doctor or go to the er. After his dentist returns, they can together decide about extraction, implant, etc... ...Read more
Since having a root canal 2 mos ago, I have gum sensitivity when pressure applied to the area. Discomfort b4 the crown. My endo re-ck & says ok. I? .
Lingering pain from?: There might be any number of causes for this- missed or accessory canal, crown or root fracture, bite high in excursions, and periodontal problem are some possibilities. I would suggest you also have your general dentist (and second endodontist?) take a look and consider getting a cbct (3d radiographic scan) that often reveals things that normal 2d x-ray can't. ...Read more

I just had root canal treatment this april 7, 2015 but not yet put crown on it. Now, mu tooth feel sensitivity to cold and sensitivity goes on root?
Root canal: If you had a root canal completed, then the nerve inside the root that allows you to feel temperature changes has been removed and it's unlikely the sensitivity to cold is coming from the same tooth. However, the root canal treated tooth can be sensitive to pressure or biting or be sore. ...Read more
I had my root canal treatment on front tooth last april 7, 2015 but not yet put crown. To my surprise, it feels sensitivity to cold now and cant use to bite because it pains. Is it normal? What should I do?
Hot&cold sensitivity/painless throbbing on recent root canal/crowned tooth #14. Xrays taken & rc failure not indicated & no surrounding cavities! Why?
Some possibilities: First, if the rct was completed and the canals were filled properly, there cannot be any cold or hot sensitivity with that tooth. One can still have throbbing if the tissues around the root of the tooth (periodontal ligament) are inflamed. 2d x-rays cannot show everything. A 3d (cbct) scan can possibly show another canal or pathology present. Sometimes these issues resolve on their own with time. ...Read more

Loose from?: If the crown is loose, intact and no caries, the crown might be able to be re-cemented. If the structure inside the crown is decayed or fractured, at least a new post and crown. If the tooth is unrestorable due to root fracture, periodontal breakdown, untreatable infection, etc. An extraction would be in order. This needs to be evaluated in person by a dentist who can discuss your options. ...Read more
What is crowning? Normally those that did root canal treatment did the crowning also. Does it permanently stick to teeth?
Tooth Covering: A crown is a permanent covering that fits over an original tooth that is either decayed, damaged or cracked. Crowns are made of a variety of different materials such as porcelain, gold, acrylic resin or a mix of these materials. Porcelain generally has the most natural appearance, your dentist will decide which material is best to use. ...Read more

How long can I wait before having a root canal? I can't afford it right now, but my insurance will kick in in a couple of months. Is it safe to wait that long? I'm not having any pain, just a little sensitivity when I eat..
Could this be a sign that I might need a root canal? Within the past few weeks one of my bottom molars has developed real sensitivity to hot and cold. There isn't any constant pain, or any different sensations beyond that sensitivity. I've never experienc
Sensitivity can also develop from periodontitis. Teeth have also porosity as our skin, in the presence of bacteria imbalance (more than the usual) it creates an acid medium that sometimes decalcifies the enamel of the tooth creating an open channel to the pulp chamber (where the nerve resides) the treatment is the use of a medicated fluoridated cream or tooth paste, and if this will be the reasoning of your sensitivity you would have solved your problem.
Anyways you need to visit your dentist in order to determine if you have a periodontal or endodontic condition.
Good luck! ...Read more
Not necessarily: Tooth sensitivity does not usually require a root canal in order to effectively treat it. There are many procedures that precede a root canal that can be used to treat the sensitivity. Most commonly, you should use a desensitizing toothpaste such as sensodyne and a Fluoride mouthwash. Usually this works. In cases of extreme sensitivity you may require a root canal. ...Read more
Depends: It is quite normal for a recently treated root canal tooth to be tender to percussion for a few days after the procedure. This is because the ligament holding the tooth to the bone is often inflamed post-procedure. Incomplete cleaning out of the canals can also sometimes lead to sensitivity. I. ...Read more

3 yrs ago had a filling. I think Dr. Dug in too deep to fill it. Had sensitivity for 1 yr. Now I feel sharp needle pain. Sign of future root canal?
Maybe: Heat sensitivity does not necessarily mean you need a root canal. Depending on the length of time the heat sensitivity lasts and how it responds to heat compared to other teeth you may or may not need a root canal. Dentists will also look at other factors such as if the tooth is sensitive to biting pressure or tapping on it. ...Read more
