Asked in Oral Health and Dental Care, Root Canals
What can you not do after a root canal?
Do you need a crown if you have a root canal on a lower left molar performed over a bridge?
If you have a root canal done, most likely you'll need a crown. But if it was done through a bridge, there is already a crown on that tooth. A bride is just three or more crowns fused into one piece to replace a missing tooth. It is possible that doing a root canal through the brige will damage the bridge and the whole until may need to be replaced if that happens. But that's not common.
Causes of a root canal?
Can you have a root canal with a crown already on?
You can have a root canal performed through a crown. It all depends on the circumstance. A small hole can be drilled into the crown and the root canal can be performed. The hole in the crown is then sealed with an amalgam or composite resin filling. Your dentist will determine if there is too much decay around the crown to perform a RCT with the crown in place. Root Canal Treatment is a process of removing the pulp/nerve inside of the tooth, cleaning it out with little tiny files and paper points to make sure it's clean and dry and then sealing it with a rubber material which is called 'Gutta-Percha'.
Asked in Dentists, The Difference Between
What is the difference between a dental post and dental build up?
Tooth is sore 2 months after root canal and crown?
A tooth can be mildly sore two months after root canal therapy, because of the stress that the tooth has undergone. If the pain is more severe, it would be good to check it with a dentist, because the crown might need more adjustments, or there might be still some infection remained from the root canal.
How do you treat an abscessed tooth?
Are all dentist trained to do root canals?
What do you do if you had a root canal and the crown came out 3 years ago and now there is a lump on your gum with a little pus in it?
Can a root canal be done in one day?
Usually - yes. Today, dentists have advanced instruments and equipment that makes it possible to complete a root canal in one appointment. Not all dentists have these instruments in their office, and some choose to perform a root canal the way they were taught in dental school many years ago. These procedures can take two or more appointments. You should also be aware that a tooth that has a root canal usually requires a restoration called a crown. This is because a tooth with a root canal will tend to get brittle and will likely fracture in the future. The crown will prevent this from happening. A crown usually requires at least two appointments, unless the dentist uses a Cerec crown mill in his office and the crown ins fabricated while you wait. Yes. A root canal can usually be performed in one appointement, unless there is an infection, or other complications that require more visits.
Do you have to get a crown after a root canal?
In my experience the answer is yes. I have had three root canals and only one crown. Let me explain before you get excited. I had an uneventful, yet rather expensive root canal/crown combo shortly after having my son 8 years ago. Then I had another root canal done in 2/08. I had a temporary filling in place. I never went to get the crown done because it was too expensive and I had lost my dental coverage. Well fast forward to today and I had to get another root canal on that same tooth because it became reinfected and was throbbing painful. So while researching "how long until Novocaine wears off". I saw this question was unanswered and thought I could share my experience. I know the entire root canal/crown thing is really darn expensive but in my experience don't wait, 'lest you want to do it all over again.' By the way, the charge to redo my root canal was more, not less expensive the second time around. You better believe I am getting my crown right away this time.
