Is there a technique that can be used to avoid tooth darkening after a root canal treatment

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Patel, I am hoping you may be able to give me some advice; I have recieved conflicting info so far and I’m unsure! Basically I have veneers to my upper teeth and unfortunately one of them now needs a root canal on it as it was damaged during the prep for the veneers and is very painful. My dentist says the rct can be done from the back of the tooth and not affect the veneer. However another dentist has told me that the tooth will likely go dark and show through the veneer, spoiling the look from the front. I am really worried about this. Is there a technique that can be used to avoid the tooth darkening after a root canal? And are you aware of similar cases where the veneers appearance has not been affected after the rct? Many thanks for any advice or info you can give

I had my root canal treatment done but now when i try to chew on it I hurts very much advice

Monday, June 29th, 2009
Q.
About 2 years ago i had root canal treatment on a cracked tooth and the tooth was then filed down and a crown put over it. Everything has been fine up until now but now when i try to chew on it i hurts very much and the pain takes a while to go away. Im just wondering what has occured to suddenly have brought on this pain.

Friday, June 26th, 2009
Q.
Hi there, I’ve been in serious pain with a tooth for two days now. I went to the dentist today who said I would need root canal therapy or an extraction, but they cannot fit me in for eight days. Is it ok for me to continue taking painkillers every three hours for eight days?

I have a deep decay in my tooth do i need a root canal

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009
Q.
Hi – I have been advised by my dentist that because of deep decay I need a root canal (last molder). But the tooth in question has no infection, no pain. My dentist now has cleaned the decay and closed the tooth with a provisional filling. In a few weeks I face a root canal treatment in excess of £1000 (incl. crown). My question is: do I really need a root canal? The tooth is calm, and if a precision crown is fitted, would it not seal the tooth effectively to avoid bacteria infecting the pulp? I just want to avoid killing a tooth just because of some decay … Some 20 years ago I had a similar case (I believe) and didn’t opt for the root canal; that tooth is still going strong. What are my options? Does it make sense to ask my dentist to only fit a crown without the underlying root canal treatment? Or am I asking for trouble?

When i touch around the teeth it hurts alot do you think it show that it is no healthy tooth

Monday, June 22nd, 2009
Q.
3 months ago I went to my dentist with a painfull tooth. He filled the tooth and as soon as I came home terrible pain started. I stayed 2 weeks with the painkillers help and I went again to my dentist. He changed the filling and I was OK for 2 weeks and my pain started again. This time he said I am grinding my teeth and he couldn’t do anything for me. My question is when I touch around this tooth it hurts alot. Do you think it shows that it is not a healthy tooth and should be removed thank you

My molar teeth filled with amalgum is slightly loose do i need a crown or do it need a root canal

Sunday, June 21st, 2009
Q.
I have a molar which had been filled with amalgum about 8 years ago in a cross shape. Recently two p[ieces of the tooth around the edge have broken off leaving the filling and the front part of the tooth. The filling is slightly loose. There is no pain in the tooth atall. Do you think this would need crowning or can it just be built up and smoothed off with white stuff. And if a crown in required would it need a post, as its a molar. Also what is the criteria for doing a root canal, was wondering if this would be necessary aswell. Thanks

I had deep filling and ever since i have suffered with pain in my jaw line please advice

Saturday, June 20th, 2009
Q.
Hi Dr Moore, I had a deep filling 2 weeks ago and ever since then I have suffered with pains on my jaw line and also in my ear. I can eat on it and can touch it and clean teeth without it hurting. I dont ever get any pain when lying down and it does not keep me awake at night either. It does hurt when I eator drink anything too hot. I have been given 2 lots of antibiotics saying i may have a root infection but they dont seem to be doing anything.I have been back to 2 dentists and they say that the filling is deep and quite near to the root but no one can offer me any advice how to get rid of the pain or why it only hurts when I am moving about. I would be grateful for any advice Many Thanks..

I have had a soregum behind my front tooth on the gum line could the tooth need root canal

Saturday, June 20th, 2009
Q.
I hope that you can help. For the past week I have had a very soregum behind my front tooth not on the gumline but further down on or under the tooth dump. It is only sore behind the one tooth, and is very painful even if just touched by my tongue and the gum pulses after touching. The tooth feels great above the gum line no sensitivity and pain feels like it pulses through it just the gum. I have has a swollen glands for the last 3 days and dentist said that this was the reason and that it will clear up naturally. I had xrays and they have come back all clear. Why would only one tooth be affected by this as gums next to the tooth don’t hurt one bit? and is their anything I do to help the situation out. ie medicated mouthwash etc Please help even eating is very difficult now. Could the tooth need root canal or extraction without proof on xray”
