You may want to use a search engine to look for the word "DentalCavitation" in parentheses.I'm not sure what an unfinished root canal is, except that when I have had root canals they were usually started on one visit and completed on another. Was it started and not finished? When a tooth is pulled, a good oral surgeon should also carefully remove the periodontal ligament and scrape, or curette, the extraction site to remove any and all dead/necrotic bone. As for the root canaled tooth, it may be a goner if the site has become infected. The tooth may need to be extracted and the same clean out procedure done as mentioned above. When you talk to an oral surgeon, be sure he or she is familiar with removal of the periodontal ligament and removing all dead bone before suturing the site.

Can a tooth that has had a root canal become abscessed?


Could an infected tooth that is not abscessed but needs a root canal kill you if not treated quickly?

It is unlikely that you will die from an infected tooth. If it abscesses, you may wish you were dead. Having said that, yes it is extremely remotely possible that you could die from an untreated infected tooth.

Should an abscessed tooth be removed or treated if there is no pain but the X-rays show the tooth to be abscessed?

Yes, you should have an abscessed tooth either removed (or a root canal) done. It depends on what the dentist says. First, the dentist will put you on antibiotics to be sure the abscess is cleared up and then do the procedure. Most dentists prefer to save your teeth if at all possible so discuss the root canal as an option.

The dentist said you have an absessed tooth does it have to be pulled or can it heal?

Abscessed teeth cannot heal on their own. It means that the tooth is dying. The root has to be removed or it could end up infecting your other teeth. Normally, a root canal would be done in this case as opposed to pulling it. If the tooth is in really bad shape, the tooth may have to be pulled.

What may happen if root canal is not done although it was advised by your dentist?

They will tell you it might get infected. My ex-husband was told he needed a root canal done on all his front teeth because of an accident he was in. He did not do it and they never got infected that was 20 years ago. You don't say why you were told it needs a root canal. If it is infected or you are in pain then you should do it.
