Irritation inflamation gum around wisdom tooth. Not impacted. Root canal on wisdom tooth vs extraction ! two extracted -- 1 root canal - lower rt?

Depends : It depends on the amount of space available for treatment access. If other molars are missing and the wisdom tooth has moved forward, then saving and not extraction is the better option. ...Read more

How long should I wait to eat hot foods after a wisdom tooth removal and a root canal?

How long should I wait to eat hot foods after a wisdom tooth removal and a root canal?

Hot Foods: Following root canal therapy, the temperature of the food is irrelevant since there is no nerve in the tooth and therefore the tooth is not sensitive to thermal stimuli. Following a surgical extraction, i would suggest that you eat temperate foods for a few days to give the tissues time to heal. Since each wound and person is different, use sound judgement for your specific situation. ...Read more

Docs can you explain, is it worth it to have a root canal on a wisdom tooth?

Docs can you explain, is it worth it to have a root canal on a wisdom tooth?

Call dentist: It could be that the crown is just a little high and is being traumatized by the opposing teeth hitting it. Call your dentist to have the occlusion of the crown checked and possibly adjusted. ...Read more

It's always best to: Call the dentist, or in this case the endodontist, who actually treated you to find out what you should expect, how long to expect it for, and whether or not you should wait it out or come back to have the tooth re-evaluated. Having some discomfort 4 days after treatment is not uncommon but each day should be better than the previous one. ...Read more

Get checked!: I believe you meant to say that now your wisdom tooth hurts badly. Maybe you have a cavity in the wisdom tooth as well? Sometimes these teeth are difficult to restore and are extracted. Other times, if its in an area that accessible, it can be filled or root canal can be done if necessary. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a bad toothache & the wisdom tooth it's decayed and broken which is better to get root canal or extraction? Dentist gave me those 2 options

I have a bad toothache  & the wisdom tooth it's decayed and broken which is better to get root canal or extraction? Dentist gave me those 2 options

Extraction: It's very rare to see someone in their later years that have wisdom teeth. They are typically hard to clean and difficult to work on. I would suggest an extraction and not spend the money on it. Unless your dentist has a very specific reason to keep it, I would recommend having it out. Best of luck! ...Read more

How long should I wait to get a root canal on molar after a part bony wisdom tooth extraction?

How long should I wait to get a root canal on molar after a part bony wisdom tooth extraction?

Right away: As long as you can open your mouth in comfort, i would not delay getting the root canal. Waiting only creates a greater potential for a dental emergency. A root canal is actually a much easier procedure than the extraction of a full boney impacted wisdom tooth. So don't delay and good luck! and don't forget to get a crown after the root canal is completed! to delay, risks your tooth breaking! ...Read more

Had a root canal on wisdom tooth. Pain for three weeks. Pain reliever Round the clock. Pain in cheek and jawbone. Half of face with teeth in pain.

Had a root canal on wisdom tooth. Pain for three weeks. Pain reliever Round the clock. Pain in cheek and jawbone. Half of face with teeth in pain.

See specialist: Have you been in touch with the Dentist ?? If a specialist did the treatment,they would want to see you ASAP to address this issue. If not done by specialist, then you should see an Endodontist for evaluation and treatment. My concern based on your report is that you may have cracked the tooth, and if this is the case, it will need to be extracted. Good Luck -- Make Appt. ...Read more

See dentist: return for follow up with the dentist who did the root canal or get a second opinion. It is possible on lower teeth to get inflammation in the nerve canal that runs inside of the jaw bone. This pressure will cause everything along the whole side to hurt. Seek follow up care. ...Read more
