Dead tooth - root canal or not?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Ozkaya  (9 years ago)
Hi,
I have a molar that already has a crown and, after running some tests, my dentist said that the nerve is dead and I should have a root canal on it. There's no infection and the tooth looked good on the X-ray. I had some pain from this tooth last week but then it subsided and I'm fine. Should I have the root canal right away or is this something that could wait a bit? I'm mostly concerned about the costs for now.

Only Orthodontic specialist performs Root Canal Treatments in Fine Feather Dental Clinics. Typical failure rate for root canal is 15% where for our Endothermic specialist it is as low as 1%. We also use robotic root canal filling where dentist has to rely less on manual judgment. For robotic root canal filling, failure rate in virtually nil.

You never know when it could blow up and land you in the hospital. It could be a week from now; it could be six months from now. It could be on a weekend or holiday when your dentist cannot treat you.

Kim, you are scaring the patient already, :) Please as a Dentist you should recommend some measure that she could take into account asap.
