Upper Molar Root Canal
Upper molar crowned, root canaled, if soreness is, due to bite (unprofessional) only, can it still get infected? Assuming root canal was successful.
Residual pain: If the root canal was very recent, it is common for the tooth to have residual pain, which should subside. If the the bite is off, a simple adjustment should take care of it. Don't be to quick to throw your gp under the bus! go back and have it evaluated. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Upper molar #14 crowned, root canaled, still dead feeling on #14, should I wait until something more happens? Canaled 6 weeks ago.
No, have it checked: The time for a tooth to feel normal after a root canal treatment is arbitrarily chosen at one month. After that, it should be normal. If it has not, usually, there is something amiss. If you had the rct by your dentist, have him check it. If the symptoms don't go away, have him refer you to his endodontist (rct specialist) so that he/she can check to see what is the problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My upper molar is silver crowned. It has a hole by root canal. It is very rough because of the many grindings. The bottomtooth, directly opposite from it has gotten rough from the top.What should I do?
Rough crown: If your root canal is done correctly (especially by an endodontist) then the rough crown with a hole can be replaced with a porcelain crown that has low abrasion to the opposing teeth and will feel like a real tooth. As far as the opposing tooth, depending on the loss a conservative, ceramic only can be placed or even bonding and contouring if minor. See a qualified dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What is the normal procedure to repair a missing upper molar that broke off years after a root canal due to never being crowned. Would the remainder of the root that still remains have to be removed as well?
More info needed: A dentist needs to see a current xray of the tooth and assess it clinically, to see if enough tooth remains for a crown. A crown is the preferred method to save the tooth. You next best option is an implant, if the tooth is too decayed or not enough is left for a crown. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a cavity on my upper right 2nd molar and I have to get a root canal, but it's so expensive. Should i get it removed?
Nerve treatment.: Root canal is a procedure to treat a dead or dying nerve inside a tooth. The dentist will usually place a protective sheath called a rubber dam in the mouth to isolate the tooth being treated. A small hole is drilled to expose the top of the nerve and then all the nerve tissue is removed all the way down to the root tip. Inert filling material is placed where the nerve was and a filling is placed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
