Root canal or not?

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: questions2dentists  (7 years ago)
Hello!

My tooth #14 was fractured. When I went in to see the dentist, he said I didn’t need a root canal. He prepped my tooth for a crown. I had pain when chewing with the temporary but not with temperature. While I was flossing, the temporary tooth crown fell off. The dentist cemented it back in. The next day, I had to go back to him to have my bite adjusted. Two days later, the crown fell off again while I was flossing. So I went to the dentist again. She fitted me with my permanent crown (using temporary cement), despite telling her that my tooth still hurt. She used temporary cement on the tooth. Since the pain and discomfort did not go away, I went back to the dentist after two days. He said I could either get a root canal and then crown the tooth with permanent cement or forgo the root canal and permanently cement the crown and see what happens. What do you think? Should I get a root canal? Thanks!

Well, I would not advise anything regarding the root canal because I do not know what your xray look like, but I would not have a permanent crown cemented on without resolving the pain issue first and knowing what is causing that.
