No toothache why root canal treatment is required?
I had a dental caries of my lower tooth, i was given antibiotics since i had lot of pain, now the pain is decreased but the doctor says the teeth has been damaged badly and asked me to undergo root canal treatment. Now iam not having pain, is it necessary for me to under go this treatment. Why this si needed when iam not having any toothache?
You had dental caries of your lower tooth which lead to an infection. Antibiotics helps in resolving the infection but if the tooth is not root canal treated the infection will return back. The tooth has to be root canal treated and a crown should be placed over the tooth.
Always remember one thing, Pain killers are not treatment, they are just measures to reduce or eliminate the pain, so that we can buy some time and continue towards our final treatment.
If you will not take root canal treatment, then few days after discontinuing your pain killer medication, the pain will eventually start once again after few days to a month.
Dental Disease is progressive disease, so within this time of not having pain, the disease would have progressed to another level thus resulting in more damage.
So its strictly advisible that you should not rely on pain killers, instead you should get your Root Canal Treatment done.
You dont have to worry about the procedure, its totally painless. If you want to see some Root Canal Videos then you can check them out at Dental Care Forum : RCT videos owned and managed by myself.
Hi, it is absolutely necessary to undergo Root Canal Treatment since the decayed tooth has infected and inflamed pulp tissue inside the tooth. It may lead to severe pain anytime again and also may involve your entire jaw bone. Swelling due to pus formation, unbearable pain and eventual demineralisation and chipping off of the tooth will take place leading to complete loss of tooth. At that time there will be no other option but to remove the tooth. so to prevent all this complication and save the tooth, it is advisable to undergo Root Canal Treatment.
Yesterday i did root canal treatment. The dentist promised me that i will not have any pain after that but im having severe toothache now.. i taken amoxicillin 500mg, gurgled and panadol 1g as prescribed for the pass 3hours but nothing happen. So i decided to take my own ponstan 500mg...and ask here. Why is this?
I had a root canal on Wednesday afternoon and when the Novocain wore off, the pain was incredible. Worse than before the procedure. I m taking the prescriptions and it seems to be hit and miss in relieving the pain. My jaw and TMJ are sore and there is a lump under my jaw where the tooth is located. Ice irritates it, but heat feels better. Suggestion to help the pain disparate?
I had a root canal about 5 years ago, not exactly sure. I ve been having a toothache there lately but its not severe like it was when the tooth was infected before the root canal. I can feel a slight gap between my gums and the cap and its been very sensitive. Does this sound like it could be a serious problem?
I am looking for information on a fistula or fissure. I developed a fissure in my neck and throat 2 1/2 weeks ago and had leakage of liquids from it. My doctor did sew it up but I am still having some leakage thru the stitches. The fissure is tiny really not big enough to pack.

I recently had an operation for fissure and it has now been almost 2 months but I am still in pain when I pass a motion. The surgeon now tells me that when he operated me the fissure was a significant one as it had been there for a long time. Therefore, I will need another operation. Do you think I need another operation and are there any side effects like becoming incontinent?
