ive had root canal broken crowns and abscess

Thursday, August 14th, 2008
Q.
Hi There Rob, Please can you help me, I have had root canal done on a lower left molar 5 years ago and a crown was placed onto the root that was left – not very much as badly destroyed it fell out a few times in those years and we just glued it back into the socket, however when I got pregnant with my second daughter I developed an abcess around this molar and was able to take gentle anti-biotics till I had my daughter. The crown became loose a few days back and I told my dentist I wished to have an implant done as she could not recommend someone we agreed to have a denture fitted in the mean time and I would source a specialist dentist.I have had the root pulled on Thurs and she had to give me 3 injections as I could feel her trying to pull it out, she told the dental nurse that the root had broken but I presumed it was all out as she did not say that any root was left in. She fitted my denture and off I went. that evening when the numbness wore off I was in agony my jaw is swolen at the site where the tooth was extracted and my gum has a hard white lump on it almost like a sore I am not sure if this is root still in there or the abcess from before or a sore from the denture. I am unable to wear the denture as it is now too painful. I really want to get an implant and reading some peoples answers I see that a specialist in implants should have extracted my tooth I am really worried and dont know what to do. please can you advise. regards

dental implant or bridge for root resorption

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008
Q.
I had 6 front upper teeth crowned (#6-110. #6 WAS needed following root canal. The others 5 were cosmetic. Tooth #8 was fine on xrays at the time of crowning. 3 months later the xray showed circular shadow about 1/4 wau into the side of tooth. 1 month later it is now at 3/4 through tooth. I’ve been adviced this is autoimmune process with the body reabsorbing the tooth after crowning. They say extraction and inplant. This tooth was fine 3 months ago before the crown. What happened? Is there any other option? I’m sad I decided to have it crowned. Thank you.

what should i do after my tooth cap has fallen off

Thursday, August 7th, 2008
Q.
2 years ago i had my front tooth capped as it was discloured due to having previously undergone root canal treatment on it. Recently as i was biting into a chocolate the full cap came off including the peg part of my tooth. The cap has temporarily been put back in using some kind of screw since part of my tooth is no longer there to keep it in place. I’ve been to two different dentists one saying i need a completely new cap and the other saying i just need work doing to support the existing cap. How do i know which one is right?

I had root canal treatment around 15 yrs ago on my

Friday, July 18th, 2008
Q.
Hello, I had root canal treatment around 15 yrs ago on my front tooth and had a veneer fitted. In the past 3 or 4 years I have had a number of veneers and they either fall off or crack. I had one fitted 2 weeks ago and within days 2 large cracks appeared. My dentist is on holiday, so I consulted another dentist who advised that my current veneer is too big, too thick and the wrong colour. He suspects my dentist has removed too much enamel from the tooth and this is why I am having all the problems as the veneer is unable to bond with the tooth. He now suggests a crown. I have been avoiding this as I am concerned that it will look false and if my gums receed that the crown will look bad. Is there any alternative or can a veneer be fitted if too much enamel is removed? Thanks

If my root canal doest work will I loose the bridge that is fitted to it

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008
Q.
I have recently had root canal work on one tooth and the tooth next to this had been removed due to previous failed root canal work. So far the recent root canal work seems to have worked although I do feel some discomfort from time to time, I am about to have bridgework to rectify the missing tooth. My concerns are what if the root canal work hasn’t worked sufficiently what options am I left with once the bridge is fitted and I’ve paid all this money for a bridge to be fitted over a troublesome tooth would I have to get the bridge and tooth removed. At the moment the gum around the tooth just seems permanently swollen is that normal?? root canal procedure was done twice and almost a month ago now, I suffer from TMJ could this be slowing down the healing process as I’ve notice the temporary crowns I have over my teeth have been ground down?

I have a root infected molar tooth should I have an implant

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008
Q.
I have a molar tooth which has been root filled & has had a crown for several years. An infection developed in the gum root which was treated by antiobiotics but my dentist is certain it will recur & has advised removal of this tooth. If I want an implant how long should I wait after extraction due to the posible presence of infection still being there? Can you give me any other advice as to the best way to go about this. Should my own dentist remove the tooth or should the cosmetic dentist do the whole job? Many thanks.
