Tooth Extraction After Failed Root Canal
To save the tooth: root canal: you try and save the tooth by cleaning the inside of the tooth and removing the nerve extraction: tooth can not be saved and have to be removed. You need to get an exam and x-ray to see what is the best option for you. You can also send me your x-rays for a second opinion http://my. Setmore.

Root canal or tooth extraction and health. What are chronic problems associated with root canals or tooth extractions?
Usually none.: Usually no chronic problems are associated with root canal therapy. However, if you extract a tooth & do not replace it, then you may have drifting, shifting, and malocclusion of your other teeth. This could be considered a chronic complication of unreplaced extracted teeth. If root canals are done properly and subsequently restored, chronic conditions are not normally found. Take care...See 1 more doctor answer
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.See 1 more doctor answer
Extraction is worse: Many people consider extraction of infected tooth a better option than root canal treatment. Root canal treatment is tooth preservation procedure. Root canal treatment with dental crown will be less expensive and more predictable than getting tooth extraction done followed by replacement of missing tooth with dental implants. Both procedures are painless and safe.See 1 more doctor answer
? unclear: I'm not clear on what your question is or why you are asking it? If a tooth is deemed hopeless it needs to be extracted. Many teeth can be saved with rct if restorable ; the long term prognosis is good. Once the tooth is extracted it's gone! And no other treatment is possible other than replacing it. It sounds like you need to discuss your situation with your own dentist as well as your options.See 3 more doctor answers
RCT or Extraction: Whether to do RCT or extract a tooth depends upon many factors and not purely the age of the patient (which is the only information given to us). It depends on whether it is an upper or lower tooth, an anterior or posterior tooth, infected or not, integrity of the tooth, occlusion, the development of the permanent tooth etc. A Pedodontist and Orthodontist can confer with each other and advise you.See 1 more doctor answer
No,: No. Some gum abscesses might be periodontal in nature and you might just need to have a deep cleaning with local anesthesia to clear up the infection.See 1 more doctor answer
See your DDS: The cause for your condition is not clear from your question. When prescribing a treatment, the etiology for the infection must be known.

Right away: As long as you can open your mouth in comfort, I would not delay getting the root canal. Waiting only creates a greater potential for a dental emergency. A root canal is actually a much easier procedure than the extraction of a full boney impacted wisdom tooth. So don't delay and good luck! And don't forget to get a crown after the root canal is completed! To delay, risks your tooth breaking!See 3 more doctor answers
What is the advantage of an upper 2nd molar extraction or further root canal. I was told I have a hot tooth?
Root canal!: Your second molar not only provides support the first molar, but it helps in the chewing process, by compacting the food against the lower molar. By removing it, you are weakening the first upper molar, and rendering the lower molar pretty useless. All the chewing forces then will be redirected to the remaining molars. A hot tooth should be easily handled by an endodontist.See 1 more doctor answer

3 days after failed root canal extraction (tooth #30), discomfort persists, socket is not dry. Why is it filled with gray/green salty tasting matter?
Post op socket: Some discomfort is to be expected. Unfortunately, we would have to actually examine you in order to determine the state of health and healing in that area. Why don't you call the dentist who extracted the tooth to discuss this issue and then follow up on healing?See 1 more doctor answer
It can: Depending on the condition of the tooth, the shape of the roots, and the skills of the general dentist. Teeth that are previously treated with root canal therapy are very brittle and tend to fracture easily, resulting in the need for a more complex surgical extraction. Surgical extractions are best handled by an oral surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
I have a choice between a root canal or an extraction. Is it really a bad idea to lose a tooth? Is it harmful?
Losing a tooth: Is it bad to loose a tooth? What about a finger? Or a toe? If you had cancer in a finger or toe, take it off. If you had an ingrown toenail or arthritis, would you remove the toe or finger? If the tooth can be saved and it has a good long term prognosis, save it. You will save money and be healthier in the end. You can live with a missing toe or finger or tooth, but why if you don't have to?See 1 more doctor answer
Had a root canal on molar 6 months ago, no crown. Was eating and some of the tooth broke. Will an extraction hurt less since the roots should be gone?
Molar extraction: Maybe maybe not. The physical experience of extraction is unlikely to be diminished due to a prior root canal. Despite the break of the tooth, you can still opt for a crown on that molar. Discuss with your dentist and try to preserve teeth as it helps prevent atrophy of mandible and maxilla.See 1 more doctor answer
