Dentist recommends root canal therapy on that tooth. What is root canal therapy?

Removes the nerve: A root canal removes the nerve, blood vessels, lymphatics and other dead cells in the center of the tooth. After the root canal is done, the tooth will not be sensitive to hot, cold or sweets.

Dental experts! what is better root canal or tooth extraction?

Dental experts! what is better root canal or tooth extraction?

Keep the tooth: All things considered equal, like the tooth can be restored after the root canal without any periodontal treatment, then it's always better to have the root canal and save the teeth. It allows continuing contact with the adjacent teeth to keep them from shifting, and it allows contact with the teeth in the opposite jaw and keeps them from drifting up or down which could change your bite. ...Read more

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 more

Filling caused root canal and crown - dentist at fault?

Filling caused root canal and crown - dentist at fault?

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 more

Hot&cold sensitivity/painless throbbing on recent root canal/crowned tooth #14. Xrays taken & rc failure not indicated & no surrounding cavities! why?

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

Possible ?: Possible? Yes. Likely? No. In the hands of an experienced dentist and with proper precautions, the risk of this is very small.

All wisdoms out, 2 root canals, and I need braces for bruxism. Can I get braces & get wisdom teeth taken out, & root canals with porcelain w/ braces?

All wisdoms out, 2 root canals, and I need braces for bruxism. Can I get braces & get wisdom teeth taken out, & root canals with porcelain w/ braces?

Porcelain w/ braces: Generally, when a person needs braces, all of the preliminary work is done first. In your case, the wisdom teeth come out, and the root canals have to be completed. I prefer to wait for the porcelain crowns on the root canal teeth until AFTER THE BRACES are done if there is enough natural tooth structure left following root canal. If not, then it depends on the dentist's judgement how to handle. ...Read more
