Can I Receive Root Canal Treatment Even When I’m Wearing Braces?

Q.

Hi I was just wondering if you could advise me with something? Is it possible to have root canal treatment whilst wearing fixed braces? I have a swollen throbbing root in my cheek from my canine tooth which is getting worse. I have had my braces for 3 months and plan on having the treatment completed after 10 months. The molar next to this tooth was extracted 5 1/2 months ago due to a failed root canal treatment I don’t know if this is a possible reason for my problem now. I have no idea whats caused it all I know is that it’s causing me great concern now. I’m also in a lot of pain, it’s affecting everything I do. Just so you know, I do brush regular and use a fluoride mouthwash daily. With this in mind, do you have any advice for me? Thank you for your time.

Is my root canal treatment a success or is there going to be an infection?

Q.

Hi, I had a deep filling done on my lower right second molar. It caused problems so my dentist advised a root canal. She couldnt get all the way to the tips of the roots and said she couldnt promise it wouldnt get infected. She said wait 3 months to see if it settles and then if it does i can have a crown.
This was done about 4 weeks ago and i still get pain but it has got better. I avoid eating on it and i do give it the odd test now and again and it doesnt hurt to eat on it. I suppose my question is I’m only in need of taking pain killers say everyother day and only at the end of the day. is this good at this stage? if i do get an infection is this a failed root canal? im so nervous im going to loose the tooth.
