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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Be patient 7-10 days: During the root canal therapy a lot of collateral tissue (gums, nerves, muscles) damage is done. The pain is a symptom of the affected tissue inflammation. Over the counter medications (Aleeve, Tylenol) for a few days will ameliorate the pain. If concerned? Call your dentist for post-op exploration. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, if "dead nerve": When a tooth "dies", the blood supply to the vital cells inside the root canal is no longer viable. In the same manner that skin will fester and remove a splinter, your body detects the dead tissue in the root and initiates an inflammatory response that begins to "fester" the bone that holds the tooth. Called "apical periodontitis, " the lesion appears as an asymptomatic clearing on the x-ray. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

The : The type of pain is important. If it is still a stapping, sharp pain, there might be something else going on. If the pain is more of a throbbing ache, it probably is normal healing pain. If it lasts more than a week without waning, get back to your dentist. It can take several days to weeks for it to ultimately calm down, as dr funari said, Ibuprofen should help. If it doesn't, go see your dentist. One thing to remember is that the nerve of your tooth is not the only thing affected when a root canal is necessary. The nerve is just one part of what we call the periodontium. The peridontium is made up of the tooth, pulp(nerve), ligament, gingiva(gum), and bone. When a tooth goes "bad", it doesn't just affect the nerve, it affects the whole periodontium. If your infection caused a swelling, the bone is infected and that can takes weeks to heal and feel "normal". Where is your pain, exactly, and has it changed at all? Every day it should feel a little better. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I've had my root canal several years ago and still no crown over it. If I do that, will the tooth last a life time?
No guarantees: In medicine and dentistry. We are not dealing with only a product. Even if we were, you probably notices less and less things are guaranteed and when they are, it is for shorter periods of time and with more restrictions. A dentist cannot control how you eat, how well you keep your teeth clean, how often you come in for checkups, etc. Discuss treatment and prognosis with your own dentist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'vehad my root canal several years ago and still hadn't put the crown over it. If I do that, will the tooth last a life time?
Only one certainty: No one can guarantee a lifetime of anything, but the tooth stands a better chance with the crown than without. It is also difficult to measure how much damage the tooth has undergone without a crown in place for the last few years. Have your dentist evaluate the tooth in its current condition for the best course of action. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sure: Depending on how much tooth is remaining. You may need a crown. Often the tooth needs a post/core foundation build-up to provide enough structure to support and retain the crown. The post goes into the canal space and helps hold the build-up in place, along with the ramaining tooth. The tooth is then prepared and the crown is then made to fit over the build-up and the tooth structure. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I : I assume that your root canal is completed. It is not unusual to have some pain after completion of the treatment due to residual inflammation of the tissues around the root of the tooth. This can be managed with Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). I may also be present if there was an infection in the bone as a result of the death of the nerve. If the discomfort does not slowly resolve contact the dentist who performed the procedure for instructions. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

If : If you are experiencing pain to a thermal stimulus (hot & cold, especially cold) then it is probably another tooth. Teeth that have had root canal therapy completed should not be sensitive to hot & cold. You should go back to your dentist to determine the source of the pain, and to restore the tooth that had the root canal since it will decay under the temporary filling. This problem will not go away by itself and must be treated. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends, how long?: Pain a day or few after may be normal. If the tooth had a significant infection prior to performing the root canal, this may lead to pain. Talk to the dentist who performed the procedure and they may want to re-examine the tooth and determine which pain reliever would be most appropriate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
