It's possible. Or it could be that your ears are making your teeth sore. Go to the dentist and have the area checked or to the doctor and have your ears checked.

A failed upper root canal effected my hearing on that side. Going to neither dentist, neurologist, EENT Specialist nor family physician ever proved useful. X-rays, MRI and CAT Scan showed nothing. Hearing tests showed some hearing loss due to ringing/buzzing in the ear which began in conjunction with the root canal. Only temporarily, after use of antibiotics, the ringing went away but returned a week later and nothing has helped since. I have lived with ear ringing for 15 years and I am certain the root canal was the cause.

shown for people that have root canals over time have a lower white blood cell count than a person with more teeth.

Yes, having a root canal can cause hearing loss; I wonder if Rush L. ever connected his nine to ten root canals, for cosmetic purposes, to his hearing loss? Read Tooth Truth by Frank Jerome, Dentist. The truth will set you free.

There is no studied or researched direct effect.

Short for apicotomy. This is performing root canal surgery which had failed previously.

Since a failed root canal may result in an infection, you should consult your dentist rather than trying to diagnose and treat yourself. Even if you do need an antibiotic, it matters which antibiotic you use, and some are available only by prescription. Furthermore, the failed root canal should be repaired.

An abscessed tooth can be treated with a root canal and a crown, or with an apicoectomy (if the root canal has failed) or with an extraction. Only your dentist can tell you which option is best for your individual situation.

If you get an infection after a root canal, its usually called a "failed" root canal. The dentist may try it again by re-filing the tooth and then repeating the process, or simply go for the more simple (and less complicated) procedure of removing the tooth in its entirely.

the best predictor is why you needed a root canal in the first place. if its due to trauma, success is extremely high. if its due to infection, success rates are a little lower. the root anatomy of the tooth also factors into success rate.

Call the dentist that did your root canal or any current dentist. When the nerve dies the tooth turns grey. Then the tooth has to be pulled. Depending on where your 'root canal' is, you may need a bridge or implant. This was my experience. Cost would depend on the dentist fee and insurance consideration. Blessings.

I had all of those symptoms except ringing ears after my root canal infection. Dizziness was caused by very high fever though. All of those together don't sound good I would go to your doctor or the emergency room immediatly!

The medical code for root canal Anterior is D3310.

No. By definition, a 'dry socket' is a painful condition that occurs following a tooth extraction, not a root canal. That is not to say that you cannot have pain following a root canal. You can, particularly if the tooth was acutely infected at the time of the root canal, or if the root canal is incomplete. You should consult with the dentist who performed the procedure and follow his/her recommendations.

Im not sure of the question but sounds like the doctor already removed the inerts of the tooth and placed a filling into the root. That is what a root canal therapy is. If you want to remove the root canal filling material and replace it with a more biocompatible material there are dentist that do that.

There are many reasons your jaw could hurt that do not require a root canal. The only way you can know if you need a root canal is to be examined by a dentist.

User Avatar

The only alternative to performing a root canal procedure is to extract the diseased tooth.

User Avatar

A lot, opt for extraction instead of root canal if its on a babies tooth.

No . . . the root canal procedure is intended to save the tooth.

User Avatar

Often a surgical procedure (apicoectomy) can be performed, which removes the infected area. The procedure can weaken the remainder of the tooth.

User Avatar

Unless you can demonstrate that the first dentist was somehow negligent or incompetent, no, you should not expect a rebate. Root canal therapy is not guaranteed. These procedures can and do fail through no one's fault.

User Avatar

It is possible that the root canal is failing. If the root canal was completed very recently, it is possible that there is an accessory canal that was missed during the initial treatment. Remember, a root canal procedure is a last ditch effort to save a tooth that would otherwise be lost. Sometimes root canals fail for no known reason. See your dentist and follow his/her instructions.

Of course!!! They won't work on root canal if they're are not trained for it. Some dentist have assistance from a person that doesn't know much about root canal, but only to help the actual peraon doing the root canal.
