How can you 'regrow' the root nerve and pulp of a tooth after a reckless dentist has removed them in preparation for an unnecessary root canal?
The nerve can not regenerate in a tooth, instead what is left of it will eventually die. You would be better off having the root canal treatment completed and if it is a back tooth you NEED a crown on the tooth to prevent breaking the tooth in the future. The tissue inside a tooth cannot be regrown after root canal therapy. But you can keep your tooth all your life if the root canal is well done and well restaured, and if you brush your teeth well.
In the future, they may be able to harvest your own stem cells and implant the cells into your jawbone. This would heal or possibly regrow dead or missing teeth.

Is a root canal necessary if a dentist takes an x-rays discovers a swollen nerve and spot but the patient has absolutely no pain?
Find you another dentist; have that one transfer your records over to him/her from your old dentist. Then have the new dentist check your mouth out. This would be a second opinion. If it turns out the same way, then go back to your old dentist, or if not, then keep the new one. Some of these, just l…ike doctors can't be trusted- they try to make a buck anywhere they turn.

Yes, legally all general dentists are qualified to do root canals. But, IMO not as qualified as an endodontist who has gone through 2-3 years of additional training in the specialty and does ONLY root canals all day rather than once/week. I would only let an endodontist do my root canal and simil…arly (but more serious) I would only let a heart surgeon do my bypass surgery. . Answer . All Dentists are qualified to do root canals.

Possibly a root canal. Or he could put a false half on it. Dentists NEVER "glue back on" the other half. If it is a small"chip" most likely a filling will do it. A larger break willrequire a filling to make the tooth "tooth shaped" again and then acrown. A root canal is only needed if the tooth had… large decaycausing the break or if the nerve of the tooth is damaged orexposed. (MORE)
Have it done as soon as possible. Any leftover nerve tissue may become calcified over time and cause future complications with the treatment. Any leftover bacteria will cause infection in the tooth and jaw. .

Why does a molar tooth still hurt two months after a root canal and could the nerve still be in the tooth?
Weird, I had this same problem recently. I had a root canal down and a few months later my tooth started hurting again. I was now going to a different dentist and he took out the filling and the previous dentist didn't fill my tooth right and my nerves were swollen so they had to cut the nerves and …do a new root canal with a new filling. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.. Answer . It is unusual that a tooth would hurt two months after a root canal, although it is not impossible.. It might be that the restaurantion done on the tooth is too high, not letting the tooth heal correctly.. There are always chances that there was an extra canal that wasn't seen by the operator. You can talk to your dentist about that possibility. He might suggest to wait 6 months. (MORE)
Could a shadowy area below a tooth root on an xray be a large abcsess if you have no pain or swelling and should you let the dentist do a root canal with no anesthetic to see if you feel pain?
Root canals can and are done without anesthetic if a tooth is known to be dead. This can usually be determined *before* the root canal is started. To answer your question, if a tooth is dead and asymptomatic, you may be able to have the procedure without anesthetic but the main reason would be to av…oid having a shot and hours of numbness, rather than to "see if you feel pain." I would see an endodontic specialist if possible. . Answer . It could be, but never let a dentist do a root canal without anesthetic, even if the nerve is removed there is still tissue there which feels pain. I know, I had it done by a dental student. She thought that because the nerve was removed (the week before) I wouldn't feel pain, and her supervisor thought she had given me a local anesthetic. (MORE)
Answer . i worked for an endodontist(root canal dentist) IT WILL ABCESS!! talk about being in pain and lots of sweeling. the nerves wont just die. please get it pulled before it does abcess and dont wait until it hurts so bad that you cant stand it.
Answer . It is very unlikely that a cleaning would cause a root canal. I would tend to answer a simple No.
Roots do not grow back once a dentist drills into the tooth andremoves the pulp (the roots and tissue inside the tooth). Afterthat, it is dead and it cannot grow back. Make sure that thedentist (after he fits the crown but before it is permanentlysealed) does an X-ray of the tooth to make sure the c…rown that wasordered properly fits the tooth. Sometimes to the human eye itappears so, but an X-ray can reveal the tiniest opening, which canlead to a re-infection and necessity of the tooth to be pulled. (MORE)
If you have had a root canal and the tooth that was removed still hurts, it is probably because the entire root wasn't removed or the drilling was not packed tightly enough. If that happens, another root canal must be performed and the tooth re-packed to prevent infection. A tooth infection left un…cared for is potentially life-threatening if the infection spreads and should not be taken lightly. Another possibility to look into is displaced pain. Sometimes the body gets confused and pain from an infection or problem in one area can be felt in another part of the body. (MORE)
Answer 1 . If this was your first visit you might just be sore from the visit itself. However, if more than 24 hrs have passed you should contact your dentist immediately as you might have more than one root that needs to come out or it might be getting infected. Your dentist might prescribe anti…biotics for a while, but you should not have pain for more than the first 24 hrs.. Answer 2 . Post-operative pain or soreness after a root canal on average will last 3 days. Some patients feel no pain, while some feel pain for 1-2 weeks. Anything within this range is normal. If your prescribed pain medication is not working, I would call your dentist or root canal specialist. (MORE)
Hey there buddy,Ive been doing some research on this matter due to the fact that Ive had 3 due to bad molars that should have been pulled years ago. First, Ive read that sometimes the doctor will take a knife and cut you like they did to "rocky" for his eye. It basically lets the blood that's causin…g the swelling and most of the pus/infection to drain out. After that u should feel better and notice the swelling to go down in a few hours, say 6+. But as far as i can tell it wont because the cavity is causing the abscess the root of your tooth is probably already dead just spreading the infection. Ive also heard that they can cause heart problems and breathing problems if it speads to those areas. I guess it all depends on how long you have had it and done nothing about it. Ive had mine for over 5 years but the last 2 years have been hell. Also ive heard that if your tooth is that bad but can be saved, most ppl end up getting it pulled 5-10 years anyway because it rotted out so you might be better to just have them pull it. I know steak and tuff meats will be off the menu but theres always mac and cheese and noodles. Besides when we all get old i bet we will have dentures too most older folks have them and i know our dental habits are worse than theirs so go get all your bad teeth pulled, drop the 2-4k for all the work and get a head start on your new chompers.... don't end up like me and have no choice left but to get dentures, Im looking at 12 teeth pulled. 3 bottom molers on both sides, my 2 beaver teeth, the 2 next to the beaver teeth and then i gotta get 2 teeth laser cut out because they broke at the gum line.... theres nothing to grab on to to pull them out...THATS BAD!!!!! (MORE)
Most likely not, as the problem with abscessed teeth is that the tooth is damaged and allowing bacteria into the pulp and root cavity. While antibiotics may clear up the infection for now, they will not prevent another infection after you are off of the antibiotics. Nor will they prevent the tooth f…rom becoming more damaged. Unfortunately, the only cure for a bad tooth is a visit to the dentist or oral surgeon's chair. (MORE)
Answer 1 . Yes, generally when you remove the nerve root you then have a dead tooth. the dentist must fill the canal and either cap it or discuss other options with you, as it will turn gray because it has no nerve.
Answer 1 . After examination and x-ray films, your dentist will let you know if you are a good candidate for a root canal. Depending on your age, health status, etc. Most likely happens when the nerve of the tooth is decaying or becomes infected. you will be on antibiotics for a while until the i…nfection clears. Then depending on above mentioned, it may take a few visits to complete the procedure. The first visit will be the touchiest of most. I'm not going to lie to you, it is painful even with anesthetic. However, after the main root is out, some teeth have several roots and canals. The next 2 or 3 visits should go well. Be patient with the appointments this procedure cannot be rushed.. Answer 2 A different Opinion . I am 66 and all my life have heard "horror" stories about the pain associated with Root Canal procedures.. About 5 years ago I had to have one in a molar, and I am here to tell you that there was NO more pain involved than occurs during the injection of the local anesthetic!!!!!. After the local anesthetic "wore off," there was no actual pain, only about 24 hours of a sensation of "pressure."I have since discussed this with a couple of dentists and have been told that most of the rumors of extreme pain with root canals is exaggeration.

Is it right to extract a tooth with a root canal treatment simply because without nerves the tooth is considered dead and assumed to have a negative effect on one's overall health?
No. Firstly, a tooth that has had root canal treatment is not dead. The tooth still receives nourishment and support from the tissues around it and does not fall out. It remains held in place by surrounding ligaments.. Sobek
Sometimes it not common but hardly it can be infected there's a 2/100 chances of it getting infected It is more likely to be infected if the tooth wasn't properly packed.
This situation can present potential complications when trying to remove the tooth. It is not uncommon for teeth in this condition to break or fracture when attempting to extract them.
Yes. If the nerve inside of a tooth dies, it is prone to infection (if not infected already). Root canal treatment should prevent or resolve this infection. A tooth may die for various reasons such as: decay, trauma, extensive wear/grinding/abrasion.
If the tooth can be saved with a root canal (pulpotomy) or other treatment, it should be done. The adult tooth that will replace this baby tooth may not erupt until the child is six or seven years old, and the dental arch may shrink if the baby tooth is lost too soon. This will lead to problems when… the adult tooth erupts and the child may require extensive and expensive orthodontic treatment to correct the problems. (MORE)
well.. it depends.. if the crack was in the crown.. then a prep is done then a fixed crown is placed.. but if the crack extended to the root.. then the tooth will be indecated for extraction.
Of course!!! They won't work on root canal if they're are not trained for it. Some dentist have assistance from a person that doesn't know much about root canal, but only to help the actual peraon doing the root canal.
Hyperocculsion or biting on the tooth that went through therapy, Possible missed canal with live tissue still remaining, severe inflammation of 1 or both of the ligaments below the tooth, bone infection if absessed before treatment as sometimes it can be very hard to get rid of these infections espe…cially under the root of teeth around the bone which in turn keeps your ligaments inflamed. Possible tooth fracture also normally around or involving the root can cause serious pain. It is also quite possible it could be referred pain from the trauma from the procedure. Sometimes these things can take some time to work out and all teeth are totally unpredictable and they all react quite differently. best advice would be talk to the dental person who did the therapy. (MORE)
It is possible that the root canal is failing. If the root canal was completed very recently, it is possible that there is an accessory canal that was missed during the initial treatment. Remember, a root canal procedure is a last ditch effort to save a tooth that would otherwise be lost. Sometim…es root canals fail for no known reason. See your dentist and follow his/her instructions. (MORE)
I had to have a second root canal on the same tooth because the first one failed Shouldn't I get a partial rebate from the 1st dentist?
Unless you can demonstrate that the first dentist was somehow negligent or incompetent, no, you should not expect a rebate. Root canal therapy is not guaranteed. These procedures can and do fail through no one's fault.
The answer is yes. There are two very important neves that run alongside the "Venus Mask" --- the parietal nerve and the oral-maxillofacial neve. That is why, before you have a wisdom tooth pulled, you're required to sign papers that warn you of the possibilities of damage to (either) nerve, includi…ng nerve damage to the ear. The same holds true if you undergo a "Typoid Mastectomy Revision" (a Cholestiatoma) in (either) ear. What I said does not necessarlly hold true for a "simple" procedure such as a root-canal procedure. However, I've been warned by those who have had root canal fillings, that (this) will weaken your teeth and can be easily broken or dislodged. I find that to be true. I've had 4 root canal procedures, and yes, I've lost all of (the teeth, due to weakening). I would never, IMO, suggest that (anyone) have a root canal filling. I've seen the results --- and, now I'm facing implants. Regards, Jim (MORE)
Your tooth should not be a color pink after a root canal! If the center of the tooth is a slight pink that could just be the (gutta percha) which is a rubber base material the dentist fills in the canal with, this take the space where the nerves use to be.. Gutta Percha color is pink... After a root… canal and the gutta percha is packed in the canals, the dentist will then fill the center of your tooth with a white or silver filling. If you are not satified with the results simply ask you dentist to put a bit more white filling material on your tooth to hide color of material....most of the time dentist are ok doing that.

Not necessarily. It depends on the extent and depth of the decay or fracture. If the decay has reached the nerve of the tooth, a root canal is indicated. If the decay has not reached the nerve, a root canal is not generally required.
No. That would just be a waste of time and money. In many cases, you wouldn't even get a root canal on a permanent tooth. You would most likely have it pulled depending on what tooth it is. Just have the baby-tooth pulled since it is going to be pulled someday, regardless.
Yes, but it should not have to be redone if they got it all the first time.
root canal treatment is the treatment of choice for the exposure of pulp and if there is pain . it can cause the swelling of the gums and in severe cases the enlargement of the lymph nodes. ( but it is not very common.)
Yes, my dentist told me today I might need to go back for a root canal.
All dentists do, if in fact after injection of lidocaine is injected area should become numb. If infection is present lidocaine may not penetrate. At this point antibiotics should be prescribed to the patient, and then return to clinic to begin treatment again.
Not all tooth pain is treated with a root canal surgery, it depends on what is wrong with the tooth and how bad it is. Here are some causes of toothache and a possible treatment: 1) sensitive teeth. Not much can be done about this except for using special toothpaste. 2) Tooth decay. Treated by do…ing a filling. 3) Abscess. Often after the abscess has been treated with antibiotics it is necessary to root fill the tooth. 4. Sinuses. Sometimes a sinus problem or infection can cause referred pain in certain teeth. Treatment focuses on the sinuses then, not the teeth. (MORE)

the dentist may prescribe an antibiotic, then the patient should take the full prescribed course. With the infection under control, local anesthetic is more effective, so that the root canal procedure may be performed without discomfort.
No. A properly completed root canal should look exactly like a normal tooth from the outside (except where the drilling was filled), but should not crack. As to sensation, the nerve has been removed and you should no longer have feeling in the tooth if everything was completed as it should be. If y…ou are experiencing pain or anything unusual in the tooth (like cracking, yikes!) I would definitely go back to your dentist. Or perhaps a different one if yours flubbed your root canal. I've had one root canal and years later I had the procedure corrected because the very tip of the root hadn't been removed. No cracking from either. (MORE)
yes they will a mid grade painkiller that you take for about a week before bedtime,
Sure it can, but almost any dentist would consider it a waste of time and money. Wisdom teeth, in 99%+ of human beings are something you are better off without.
No, but it is what most dentist's do, and it is better for your teeth.

Go to a dentist and shortly after they see the tooth they will most likely whiteing it or make you use the whiteing strips
you go directly through the PBM/ crown it is later filled with a temporary material or a composite resin is placed back on it.
You dont have to do anything. That is perfectly normal. My sister had one and hers is the same way. The dentist said it will be like that. So sometimes if you go to the dentist they can give you a cap for it, but i dont think it's recommended.
A root canal is an open wound. The mouth is a breeding ground for germs. Amoxycillin is a powerful antibiotic that helps the body fight any possibility of infection while the wound heals.
You will need to go to the dentist asap!! Get sum antibotics and he will refer you to a specialist endo doctor

It really depends on the situation and preference. Both of these options are not a 100% fix. Pulling the tooth can cause complications where there is no supporting bone structure for the teeth beside the one being pulled. This can cause the teeth to shift and it also has a chance of changing your bi…te alignment. Also if you haven't had your wisdom teeth removed and for example you had a molar or premolar pulled then the wisdom tooth has room to push in and all the teeth between it and the one pulled will shift forward. This can sometimes cause complications, but also could save you spending a lot of money getting your wisdom tooth pulled as it will have the room to grow in place. If you wish to go for the root canal you will be looking at $800+ with no coverage and that doesn't not even include getting a cap or crown on the tooth. In addition there is no guarantee that the tooth would be saved. Complications can occur where the root gets fractured and there is no saving the tooth so you just threw all that money away. Personally in my experience if you come to the point where a root canal is needed, I suggest getting it pulled and save what teeth you can with fillings that aren't nearly as severe. And if you aren't to worried about your complexion in regards to fillings, I would go for one of the stronger fillings like silver amalgam. They can last anywhere from 10-30 years and they are a cheaper material. (MORE)
You can get a second opinion, you can ask the dentist for the factsincluding any x-ray evidence. The first time I got a root canalover 40 years ago I am certain beyond doubt that I needed it. Thedentist began drilling and I pointed out that he did not administernovacane. He said "Don't worry; you do…n't need it." It was a fronttooth; I felt nothing. However, I don't recommend this method ofproof in all cases. A root canal may be indicated even if there issome life left in the nerves. (MORE)
