Pulling teeth or root canal

Common Questions and Answers about Pulling teeth or root canal


Avatar f tn I'd wait if you can, the pain is intense and you wouldn't want to be on pain meds. I had a root canal when I was 5weeks along and I didn't take any pain meds, and I was up for 3 days in excruciating pain. I had my wisdom teeth out years ago but the pain even while medicated was worse than the root canal. Put it off if you can... I think your dentist is crazy for saying he or she would do it. A wisdom tooth can wait! Don't put yourself through the misery!!
Avatar f tn (feels like my teeth are all being pulled by a string and pulling on the nerves of my teeth, especially on my left upper teeth which is opposite of root canal side). I will see the pain specialist if I don't get this resolved.
Avatar f tn I just learned a relative with heart disease had 3 root canal teeth pulled. He insists he felt better afterwards than he had in a long time. He recommended the book to me. I've had a root canal since I was a teenager and smashed my front tooth on a pool slide. I'm struggling to get well and seriously wondering if this could be part of my problem. Anybody out there feel better after pulling a root canaled tooth?
Avatar n tn The endodontist may also let you know if the previous dentist who did the root canal did not seal the tooth properly or missed an additional canal in the root. I worked for a endodontist for over 4 years, as a dental assistant. We saw alot of cases where the general dentist would do the root canal, and since they do not have the additional training or the equipment that an endodontist does, they can miss things or not seal the canals properly.
Avatar n tn ve never heard of pulling teeth due to an absess. So maybe, just maybe, the teeth were pulled due to another or additional problem? They don't do root canals either until you've taken antibiotics (which is weird since antibiotics cannot enter the tubules). Far as swelling after extractions this varies widely with the pre-extraction condtion of the teeth. I had a week long swelling after my one and only root canal which I wish I hadn't had done.
Avatar m tn Dentist wants lots of $ for 1 root canal and 4 crowns. Why not just have them pulled. The rest of my teeth are in good shape. I just had cavitty problems due to enamel missing on those teeth. I really do not know pro's and con's of just pulling teeth or pro's and con's of crowns. Any adivice or links to other posting etc would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I am going to get my wisdom tooth pulled to see if it will allow the gum line to expose enough tooth for a crown 15 was cracked and i left it alone for a while decay was bad and after consult with endo he told me that he would have to see if he could find the canals--he did and root canal was painless and complete--everyone in the office has been great--The only thing i am worried about now is that i had the root canal and the dentist said to be careful not to crack the tooth --i am just worrie
Avatar n tn It is a molar tooth. It has had a root canal and a crown...then replaced with a different crown...I have been on 2 different types of antibiotics if there was an infection. The only sensation I have in the tooth is a inconsistent ache.. Not all the time though. Just a feeling of wanting to floss real deep. My last choice is to have it extracted and an implant put in..When should I know for sure..When he does an xray there is a darker area above the tooth.
Avatar m tn Not sure if a root canal is necessary for this to happen, however, a root canal would be a faster way to experience such an unwanted complication. Myself, I have read Dr. Price's "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration", and hold nothing but respect for this great medical researcher & scientist. BTW, the book is a free download, if you search enough online, as it is public domain.
Avatar n tn If the endodontist only gives the tooth a 30% chance I think those are not very good odds. Yes the infection will be removed at the time of the extraction. I am very much in favor of implants and I restore them all the time in my office. It is a excellent alternative to cutting two adjacent teeth to put in a bridge. My first choice if you have to lose the tooth is the placement of an implant.The implant can be a life time restoration.
Avatar f tn It sounds like you need a root canal on those teeth instead of a filling. Have your dentist evaluate the two fillings for potential root canals. A cold test should help to determine which one may be the problematic one.
Avatar m tn If it is not, he will not have to start the root canal and will not have to charge you for a full root canal. Call his office and ask what the fee would be if he could not do the root canal, as it should not be anywhere near the cost of the full treatment.
Avatar f tn Well, after your consultation with the endodontist, it sounds like there's a 60-70% chance of success in a root canal retreatment. By definition, if it is successful, the infection should be resolved. By cleaning the canals and removing the source of bacteria, the body will be able to fight off the infection. Unfortunately the blood supply/flow to a tooth is poor, hence why the body isn't as effective in healing or removing the infection.
Avatar n tn Hi, It does sound like a fracture. There are really only two things it seems they are suggesting you do. Get the root canal and crown and hope the fracture holds, or I'm sure they would suggest having the tooth extracted and getting an implant placed there. Because it is the last tooth your dentist may suggest nothing but an extraction, if all else fails. A root canal would be the first step. If there is already a fracture and it is wide enough, it will be seen during the procedure.
15266454 tn?1439488014 Looking to get a number of teeth pulled to cut back on infection. A root canal I have the post in poking into my right sinus and causes me to have a sinus infection that I have had for years now. Also to get rid of a lot of sliver fillings. Has anyone pulled teeth and had great results on the MS side of things?
Avatar m tn Lump after root canal is generally associated with failed root canal treatment. If you wish to save the tooth, redo root canal is a viable option. There are U.S. trained dentists practising in beijing and shanhei.They may help you.
Avatar m tn If you decide to do a root canal, an onlay may not be the most ideal treatment. A crown may be a more ideal option. As for the post/core, a core is necessary but a post is dependent upon how much tooth structure is left after the root canal.
Avatar f tn My female chi had dental surgery few months back, they removed some teeth, but on dogs, what they don't tell ya, or I didn't learn on my own, when teeth are removed the remaining teeth get all out of line....so now her mouth looks really bad, cause the teeth they left moved, and moved fast, they stick out, there all messed up....Its $200 job here but the after math of it, its bad too...so not sure for you....
Avatar m tn I went to the dentist for extreme pain in my lower left teeth area. I thought maybe cavity or root canal. Dr said no its perio. I freaked because I take good care of my teeth. My girlfriend says my breath does not smell like perio and my gums are not red they are a nice healthy pink. Anyway, the pain in intolerable and I say do what you have to do. He does a deep perio scrape (not to the root) and sends me home. 2 days later I have same pain and additional because of the scraping.
Avatar m tn Said options would be retreatment or an implant. A day or two latter the tooth has quit hurting, no sensitivity or pain at all. If there was an issue (abscess) wouldn't that have been observed by the xray. I concerned that someone may want to do considerable work for something that may not be an issue at all. How can I verify. Thanks your your comments in advance.
Avatar n tn (Also what is this bridge device i keep hearing about. Also do root canals pertain to each root or each tooth? meaning, can i get a root canal for my tooth with 4 roots and still have it function properly?
Avatar n tn Root canal teeth usually require additional treatment like a post and core and crown to properly seal and protect the remaining tooth. Make sure your dentist discusses all the costs involved from beginning to end including the option of removal and replacement with a dental implant and implant crown. The choice is usually left to the patient. Both options are widely acceptable.
Avatar f tn if you get a jawbone infection there could be serious complications. pulling the tooth is much cheaper than a root canal and many dentists accept payment plans. even if the tooth falls out the infection could have already damaged the bone and other teeth. run to the dentist now!!!!!
1605619 tn?1301631851 I am scheduled for a retreatment of a root canal next month. I have been going over the fees for this retreatment and upcoming crown...yikes! I wonder if it's even worth it! Is there a point when you just say enough is enough and have the tooth pulled???
Avatar m tn Or he did in on purpose just to earn money from the root canal treatment? now after the root canal the pain is hardly there and still waiting for next week final treatment for the final sealing etc.I am so devastated,my old filings is there like more than 10 years and never caused any pain till my dentist suggestead that there is crack and old filling are comming off so a redo of filings and worse is causing more pain and a need for root canal treatment.
Avatar f tn At the time my dentist put on the crown I asked him if I needed a root canal he said no it was fine, but after some time I could not bite down on anything hard, I had some slight pain.But nowI have a lot of pain in what seems both molars plus jaw pain and ear pain sometimes very severe.
