Stop Coumadin Root Canal
Coumadin and RCT: I have been practicing dentistry for over 40 years & have done over 1000 rct's with many patients on coumadin. It has never been nor should be any problem. There is little or no bleeding with this procedure to even be a concern. Even with extractions and in consultation with cardiologist, i usually can manage simple extractions without a patient going off coumadin. Ask your dds\md to confirm this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: The use of Coumadin when properly controlled (inr -2.0-2.5) should not contraindicate either surgical or non surgical root canal procedures. Careful monitoring blood loss is critical during the procedure. Consult with an experienced endodontist or oral surgeon to evaluate the specifics of your case. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Patience: Often, a tooth will be tender/sore after having a root canal. This can last several days or more, especially if the tooth and tissues surrounding the tooth's root were in bad shape before the root canal. The root canal takes care of the cause of the problem, but the surrounding tissues still need time to heal. If it lasts more than a few days or so, see the treating dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Pain and root canals: If you had pain before the root canal, chances are that the pain will still be there after the root canal.

It's been a week since I had a root canal done and it still really hurts a bit. Is that normal? When can I expect it to stop?
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: It is normal to have some resedual pain and the area maybe sore when you are chewing. All of the discomfort should go away soon. It is not the same for everyone. For some people the healing is quick maybe a couple of days and for others it could be a couple of weeks . If your discomfort remains call your dentist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
