Tooth crown without root canal

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth crown without root canal


Avatar n tn Hi, I have basically the same situation on the same tooth, only I had a root canal done with a crown (second crown). I had this done about 4 years ago. I started with pain with heat and it has now turned to cold,air and just randomly. The gum above the tooth has also become sensitive. When I had the heat sensitivity, it seemed to spread like a wave of pain deep in the tooth. I went to the dentist the other day and had an x-ray done and he didn't find anything.
Avatar n tn I will see my dentist tomorrow, I am afraid for him to fill the crown now, should I wait to fix the crown? The tooth feels like it did after I had my permanent crown. Will the pain on the tooth go away? I do not have throbbing pain. Thank you! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/437982'>Root canal & crown still hurts 6 mos. later</a>.
Avatar f tn After the crown the tooth still hurts and I was told I needed root canal and so my dentist remove the permanent crown and did the root canal and again crowned. After 4 months I still feel sensation from the tooth. I was told to wait for at least few months. It has a mild pressure pain when touching with my fingers. It does not hurt to chew but the tooth hurts after chewing hard or chewy food. The sensation or mild pain only felt by touch with my tounge or fingers.
Avatar n tn Wondering how it could hurt after the root canal and same pain be in the tooth above that has not had a root canal. Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
9251290 tn?1464582139 Root canal treatment procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia, and is usually painless. If required, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication may be prescribed during the course of the treatment. so without fear.... Go to root canal treatment but make sure... Hire best dentist for your treatment.
Avatar n tn It has been 1 week since i had my root canal in tooth #20 and the pain is still unbearable - I can not eat on that side at all without major pain. And when I tap the temp crown wth my fork the pain shoots up to my ear. Is it possible the tooth is still infected and that the root canal did not work?
Avatar n tn I'm still assuming the root canal has not been done yet. Therefore a crown should not be put on the tooth simply because the tooth is infected and must be cleaned out via Root Canal. It's all expensive. But once a root canal is done if you go that way sometimes the tooth can go a long time before a crown is put on it. It may become more brittle with and with out chances for part of it breaking off. Just doing an extraction is another choice. Hopefully it isn't visable.
Avatar n tn I had a root canal and crown prep done 3 days ago on a lower left molar. When receiving the numbing injections I got a major jolt to my cheek. I have TMJ/ TMD on this same joint. I have been taking ibuprofen and acetaminophen rotating every 2-3 hours for pain. My tongue can't touch the tooth without major pain, but I've got throbbing pain shooting through my cheek....even Vicodin hasn't helped. I'm losing patience and at wits end with all this pain. Any ideas, suggestions, etc????
Avatar n tn Almost 3 years ago I had two teeth broken when my dog pulled me face first into the side of the house. On the front left tooth, my dentist then said a root canal was not needed and just put a crown on it. It has been sensitive to cold ever since ( I haven't not been able to drink without a straw or bit into anything cold since ) and hasn't gotten any better. 4 days ago I woke up with excruciating pain in this tooth and nothing helps, it just continues to throb.
Avatar n tn I have been out of town but my dentist put me on antibiotics for a possible abcess and has lined me up for a root canal with a specialist. My question concerns the need for a root canal since I do not want to have one done if not absolutely necessary. If the tooth felt ok before the crown, why would it not feel ok with the crown? Could it be the crown installation itself? How long does pain from an abcess usually last?
Avatar n tn Severe pain for several months, finally went to regular Dr.. He said the tooth was dying, and prepped for root canal (used formaydyhyde for disinfecting ???. Went to endo, drilled, recleaned, redrilled. precautionary antibiotics. Endo used dye and light for possible missed tooth fracture, many xrays. When Endo tapped on tooth it hurt also gum area behind the tooth, biting causes pain and dull pain is always therre.. Endo checked surrounding teeth with heat and cold, they were ok.

Avatar n tn I had a root canal and crown on #20 in October 2008 without incident. X-Ray showed (prior to) large dark area just under the large filling. Dentist felt the old filling had a hairline fracture, which allowed bacteria to get into the tooth, causing decay. I had no symptoms whatsoever, no sensitivity to heat or cold, nothing But It was obvious from the X-Ray, to me there was a problem with #20 and something had to be done in October 2008.
Avatar n tn In November I had a root canal on a lower left molar. In Dec. I had the permanent crown put on it. In January I feel discomfort on the crowned tooth. It aches after chewing. I went to the dentist. All the diagnostic tests were normal, xray, percussion, bite with carbon paper, air, gel to check if nerve pain. Negative for nerve pain although sometimes I feel a little ping or shock on the tooth when I try to chew on that side.
Avatar n tn Appointment with Dentist is made and before the Dentist puts the crown back on he wants to do a Root Canal. The tooth is not painfull, It just needs crown replaced that popped off during flossing of teeth. I feel my friend is being taken advantage of. How do we prove Root Canals neccessary or Not. Don't tell me a second opinion coz. There is no Competive pricing in the Dental world for procedures.
Avatar n tn I have a molar that has a crown on it and, in January, had a root canal retreatment on the same tooth. Initially, I did get an infection which was treated by antibiotics, and then was fine. However, recently (e.g., August), the tooth seems a bit achy (on and off) and the gum line looks white-ish underneath the crown. The gum is not sore, however, and does not seem imflamed. Is this white gum normal with a root canal?
Avatar n tn Seven months after a seemingly successful root canal tooth #30 is painful to pressure on both sides (cheek and tongue side), pushing on it hurts. I can bite down on it without pain and it is not senstive to hot or cold. Sometimes it feels like the whole tooth is faintly aching. I have had several new xrays from a different dentist who showed it to his favorite orthodondtist and they said the root canal looks okay, but I should have the "mesial" border checked on the crown.
Avatar n tn Do the apico or extract the tooth and either place an implant or fixed bridge. It is difficult to give you definitive advice without seeing the tooth. My gut says you have put a considerable time an energy to save the tooth do you try one more procedure to try to keep it. It is not an easy answer.
Avatar m tn The dentist told him he didn't think a specialist could get it out without severely damaging the tooth. The dentist has put a temporary crown on until the permanent one arrives. My question is "What are the possible problems that my husband could face by going through with the crowning?" Is there any serious health concerns that we should consider?
Avatar m tn Everything went according to plan, with the exception of getting a crown put on the tooth. I don't know what the likelihood is of anyone else having a root canal with an exposed filling, but I do since I couldn't afford the procedure the first time. My problem is this: 12 years ago, I saw a dentist who informed me that there was a hairline fracture in the filling.
Avatar n tn also, the tooth should be restored with at least a post/filling asap after the root canal. A crown will most likely also be needed. Doing the root canal only is in my opnion not advisable because the tooth is very prone to decay and fracture without it being restored.
Avatar n tn He said the xray showed that the filling there was too large and that there was not enough tooth left to hold on to a cap or crown without doing root canal to strenghthen the tooth enough to hold a crown. So... I had root canal. First appointment he drilled to kill the nerve. I could not chew on that side for 1 week and even after that it was extrememly sensitive to any kind of touch. Hot or cold did not bother me at all. Second appointment (1 week later) he did the canals.
Avatar f tn The doctor did say he would start me on penicillan for 3 days before the root canal. Is it better to just pull the tooth? Is there less chance of the infection traveling? Thanks for any advice.
Avatar n tn instead of doing a satisfactory root canal treatment & pfm crown on 46 patient developed pain after 3 months, IOPA revealed periapical radiolucency below distal root.after that i removed tahe crown removed restoration,removed all GP from all canals as GP from distal canal was removed Pus started oozing out from the orifice.
Avatar m tn After over 3 hours I decided to try and eat something, and I tried to chew with my right side only. Soon enough, I accidentally chewed down with the tooth I had the root canal on, and man, did it hurt like nobody's business. I know it's barely been half a day since the root canal, but is this normal? I feel some pain from even the pressure of clunching my teeth.
Avatar n tn The molar infront of the root canal is crooked as for so long i didnt have the impacted wisdom taken out hence causing the hole inthe root canal tooth and the tooth b4 it to point slightly inwards. I always had a bad experience with the dentist and unfortunately was totally reluctant to go since childhood. I suffered from gengivitis for a long time but now my gums are ok my paint threshold is pretty weak and the wisdom tooth extraction this oct was the most rtraumatic experience ive ever had.
Avatar n tn I had the specific root canal mentioned through an endodontist, and it was two or three weeks before my dental appointment to fill and crown it (well, re-crown it, the root canal was through a crown.
