Will losing temporary filling after root canal ok?

Dr. John Yu Dr. Yu
6 doctors agreed:

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 more

Tooth pain started 3 weeks after perm crown. Dentist: wait, see if the nerves correct themselves. Root canal? Wait? Heat hurts and can't chew food

RCT: Sensitivity to heat is especially a classic sign of nerve involvement and the need for root canal therapy. Pain on biting pressure can be merely the bite being high and the need to adjust the bite. However, both symptoms combined along with the course of events that you describe would make the need for rct very likely. I think 3 weeks is long enough to wait for resolution. See your dentist now. ...Read more

And if the sensitivity does not go away after 1 week and the quality of pain changes to constant, spontaneous, and to hot temperature might need root canal. ...Read more

Is gum bleeding normal after wisdom tooth removal?

Is gum bleeding normal after wisdom tooth removal?

Yes: The gums bleed when the tooth is removed because the blood flow to the tooth is broken and open. This is common, and should stop quickly if not irritated. Certain medications can slow the clot formation and suction from a cigarette or straw can cause bleeding to continue. It may indicate gingivitis to the area which is normal as brushing and cleaning around an extraction site should be gentle. ...Read more

Can constant dental filling replacements result in tooth removal?

Can constant dental filling replacements result in tooth removal?

Sometimes: Every time a filling is removed and replaced a little bit of tooth is removed. Typically when the filling is 1/3 or more the width of the tooth, the tooth structure is thin enough that the tooth is vulnerable to break and so a crown is placed. If a crown is not placed the tooth can break and need to be removed. ...Read more

Black tooth under temp crown, is it tooth decay?

Black tooth under temp crown, is it tooth decay?

It All Depends: All other answers are valid. However, I'd like to add that if the temp crown was recently placed while you're waiting for a permanent crown, the black coloration can be from bacteria getting through the temp crown. It's a result of not having a good seal with the temp crown and usually not a cavity. You commonly see this if the temp crown has been in place for some time where the seal is bad. ...Read more

Upper molar crowned, root canalled(same tooth), 3 roots done by X-ray shown, still mild tooth pain always, does this mean 4th? Canal?

Perhaps..: Most upper molars only have 3 canals, but...A 4th is possible. Sometimes a tooth with a root canal needs time to calm down. I don't know what your time frames are but give it a little more time. Then go back and see the dentist that did your root canal. It might need a retreat or apicoectomy, or maybe just another round of antibiotics. Either way...I commend you...Good call. ...Read more
