Crown is safe: Stainless Steel crowns have been in use for over 50 years to restore severely broken down teeth in children. They are perfectly safe. On baby tooth the procedure used to treat an infective nerve (pulp) is called a pulpotomy, not a root canal. While they both treat the pulp, a pulpotomy is a simpler procedure specifically for baby teeth. True "root canals" are not done on baby teeth. ...Read more

I need a root canal with local anesthesia for my molar tooth. I now take 0.25 mg xanax (alprazolam) 3 times a day for my anxiety. Is it safe to have anesthesia?
Eat after root canal: I would suggest that you wait to eat hard or semi-soft things until after you anesthesia has worn off. I would also caution doing any heavy biting or chewing on the root canaled tooth until you put a permanent restoration on the tooth. Root canaled teeth tend to become brittle over time, and you could end up damaging your tooth beyond repair. Root canaled teeth can be sore up to 3 days afterwards. ...Read more

I'm having a root canal tomorrow (1/4/2018). May I drink alcohol tonight for a friend's party or is it best to avoid It all together? My surgery is tomorrow at 8:15 AM. Thanks.
Likely Yes: If you don't have any pain, and have not been prescribed any antibiotics, you can drink alcohol. Just make sure that you stay away from biting on that tooth until you get the permanent restoration (crown). Specially, be careful if you have a few too many drinks and forget that you should not be biting on the tooth. Of course, it is not very healthy to have a few too many drinks ;-). ...Read more
