Will root canal treatment lessen pain caused by teeth with no enamel?

Monday, February 22nd, 2010
Q.
My 14 year daughter unfortunately had her four back teeth come through with no enamal on them, about 3 months ago we had to have a root canal treatment on one of them. She is now in pain again and the dentist has recommended that they try root canal treatment again, the tooth is crumbling away, and she is on anti biotics to try and clear the infection she also has a phobia with needles and dentists! Is another root canal treatment likely to work for her, or would it be best to extract the tooth? This is not an option that she wants as she does not want a gap in her teeth, but the pain she went through last time for it not to work, how many times will they try and do root canal before they say to extract it. Many thanks,

Is gum surgery and dentist advice accurate?

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010
Q.
I have four crowns on my front teeth with root canal done more than 15 years sgo. As I was feeling some pain and pressue so my dentist told me that you have to redo root canal and than new crowns will be put.After root canal was done he said one of my front tooth( 11) which has post has no space on back for crown to be fixed so gum surgery is required to expose the root at least 5-6 mm and bone would also be cut. He said this type of treatment may not be good in long run so best option is to take out the teeth and do implant. He said if we do expose root now and cut the bone 5-6mm and crown is not stable after wards then impalnt is also difficult as some part of bone already ic cut. I need your opinion on this.,

Is it normal to still feel numbness after root canal treatment?

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010
Q.
last Thursday 4/02/10 i had a root canal completed on UR2 tooth and now on Tues(/02/10 i am still experiencing a dull but at times intense aching. The severity of discomfort varies throughout the day from barely noticeable to quite severe radiating up into jaw. I havd been having problems for about 3 months with this tooth before my dentist decided to carry out the root canal. She said the procedure went well and was straight forward. Because i have Multiple Sclerosis she has said that if i continue to have problems with this tooth then i need to see my GP because it will be “to do with my condition”. Is this discomfort normal and if so how long should it last. What can i do next apart from have the toth extracted if this does not settle. Ps. the tooth feels ‘tender’ but not painful to the touch and there is no swelling but behind the tooth is also tender. I also clench my teeth at night and wonder if this could be a contributing factor. Sorry this is so long but i’m desperate to sort this problem once and for all. Many thanks,

What treatment can I have for crack in root canal?

Thursday, February 11th, 2010
Q.
I was having pain in my only tooth with a root canal and a crown, had it xrayed by my dentist and was told I had a crack through the root canal tooth and would need it removed and a bridge applied, what would happen if I did nothing with this tooth, I have always favored it, and it doesn’t seem to bother me too much now (only with a sinus infection I had). Thank you,

Dentist recommends root canal but how long will this last?

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010
Q.
My dentist recommends a root canal but Im nervous because I want to know the success rates and to know how long I can expect the root canal to last. I do not want to pay for root canal then six months later pay for something else on it.,
