Not at all: With local anesthetics, dental treatment pain is the stuff of mythology and hysteria--if and only if you don't wait until dental disease is a full blown infection. In some advanced, abscess cases, anesthetic doesn't work 100%. In those cases, i'll prescribe antibiotics and home care remedies until infection subsides and then provide therapy. Much more confortable for both of us! ...Read more

How badly does cavity filling hurt on a minor cavity in a front tooth and will i look weird after?
Fillings: That are minor/small many times do not even need anesthesia.

No: It shouldn't hurt at all. You will be given a local anesthetic and as long as there's no large infection in the area of the injection, the anesthetic should block all of the sensations from the tooth reaching your brain. If you do feel some discomfort, tell the dentist and he will definitely give you more anesthetic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Just the anesthetic: Once you get the anesthetic to numb your tooth and your gums, everything else should be pain free, drilling the tooth can be noisy and annoying but that's all, the impressions to make the mould for the lab are usually done in the same visit, if your dentist uses a cerec machine you can get your crown the same day, or you can get a temporary crown until your next visit. ...Read moreSee 14 more doctor answers
Yes: If they had to cut a hole through an existing crown in order to perform a root canal treatment on the tooth, then yes, you could have the crown repaired with a filling presuming that the rest of the crown is in good condition. If the rest of the crown is no longer in good condition, then the entire crown should be replaced. ...Read more
No: Removing an old, failed restoration does not hurt--mostly because you are numb and don't feel anything anyway. What hurts is the decay that may or may not have affected/infected the nerve in the root canal. The longer you delay upgrading the restoration, the higher the likelihood of advanced decay underneath. If strictly for cosmetic upgrade, likely no problem. ...Read more

Can you put a filling on a crown? I chipped a portion of a crown and the part that is left i was wondering if a filling willworkor if they will have to replace the whole crown?
Is it normal for a dentist to put on a temporary crown before a root canal, and afterwards put on a permanent crown?
Yes: This is normal. A tooth requiring both a root canal and crown will often have the temporary crown placed, followed by completion of the root canal. The root canal does not significantly change the shape of the tooth to be crowned, so the permanent crown will still fit very well when it is put on. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
Depends: If the tooth has a severe abscess, then it may not be complete "numb" due to the amount of infection present. Usually, the dentist can achieve complete local anesthesia and the extraction of the tooth is painless. If you are concerned about discomfort during the procedure, discuss the option of IV sedation with your dentist or oral surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
