I still have pain after root canal treatment.

Monday, July 11th, 2011
Q.

had a root canal done wednesday. Had had a lot of pain b4 and a rather large lump which had started weeping pus b4 treatment. Worried that as i still have a small tender lump on the gum this treatment may be unsuccessful and the infection may not go. I am on antibiotics which finish in 4days time. What do you think ? this tooth had been playing me up for sometime but every-time i had an xray nothing ever showed up until the lump appeared. Thanks

My one year old fell and chipped his tooth, what should I do?

Friday, June 17th, 2011
Q.

Hi! My son is 20 months old. He fell and chipped his 2 front teeth on Friday night. I consulted a pediatric dentist the next day. He didn’t file it as he thought it may traumatize my kid & recommended to return on Monday for the filing. He also prescribed an anti-biotic so that the teeth does not discolor, for which he says he’d have to do a root canal(!). I was wondering if the anti-biotic is actually necessary and whether my son would really need a root canal if the teeth discolors after some time.

Would appreciate a quick response.

My tooth still hurts after an accident, is my best option root canal treatment?

Monday, June 6th, 2011
Q.

Hello Mark, how long can it take for a damaged tooth ligament to settle. My front tooth does not seem to be recovering since the impact , which is almost four weeks ago. I still can’t bite down on it. Do you think Root Canal Treatment is my better option? X Rays show no sign of damage to the roots.
Could the pulp still be damaged? The tooth mostly hurts when I bite on it but does throb on and off through the day. thank you for your time

What can I do about my infected gums?

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011
Q.

Three months ago I visited my dentist because I had a slight gum tenderness around one of my front incisor teeth. He suggested that I should rub Corsodyl around it twice a day. This treatment didn’t seem to work so he took an X ray which revealed that there was an infection. Probably five years previously, this tooth had been capped. He then suggested that he should attempt a root canal treatment, which he did ten days ago. Sadly, for me he said that he had not been able to do this successfully. I think he said it was due to “corrosion” ! He said come back and see me on the 9th June and we will decide what to do. Obviously, I do not wish to lose this front tooth; – would it be a good idea to be referred to a specialist endodontis ? I do not have any pain – at the moment – a very slight discomfort when I eat. I f you do suggest that I go to a specialist should I do this before 9th June and are you able to recommend someone really good in the area OR has it to be London ? Many thanks indeed for your help.

How many times can you have veneers replaced?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Hi there doctor ,

I got veneers for my 2 front teeth about a year ago but I’m not too happy about the colour. I’d like to whiten my teeth and replace my veneers to match the new colour of my teeth. Is it possible to replace my veneers? Is there a limit to replacing them? Also, my veneers feel a little shaky sometimes. If they do break off, do I have any other options? I’ve read that veneers can only be replaced twice in a life time at most. Any truth to that?

Thank you for your time

Is it less painful to have a wisdom tooth extracted or root canal treatment?

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011
Q.

Hi doctor,

My wisdom tooth has got infected. It’s on my upper left jaw. I visited a dentist today and she advised me tooth extraction to be performed in a week’s time. She also prescribed me Ammoxicillin (500mg) to be taken 3 times a day for one week. I am not sure if I should go for a root canal treatment or a tooth extraction. My exams are approaching so I want to go for a treatment which takes less time and gets me back on work asap. I would also like to know which one is a less painful procedure. I am 29, female. Please help.

Thanks,

Can my brother claim cosmetic services off the NHS for poor dental treatment?

Monday, May 16th, 2011
Q.

My Brother is in need of a dental implannt in one of his front teeth due to an accident he had 10 years ago where he feel and broke his tooth, countless attempt have been made to save the tooth and a root canal was performed a few years agao. He recently went to the dentist to have a post put in with a porcelin tooth attatched however when the dentist used air to dry the area the air when through his tooth and through the root canal that had not closed and his lip and cheek swelled instantaneously. He is now told that there is an infection and his tooth will fall out. Due the incorrect root canal procedure are we liable for a free or discounted price from the NHS for a private implant treatment and if necessary bone graft treatment. Any advice on this matter will be greatly appreciated.
