Root Canals

Root Canal Temporary

08/08/2011

Question:

I had a root canal did about a year ago but I had only had the temporary did and not the permanent. The temporary just came out and the root canal is exposed. I can`t get another appointment for another week. Will this tooth be ok until then or will i start having a tooth ache. Should I watch what I eat or eat on the other side. Will it cause it to get infected.

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness.  You may need the root canal redone before placing a crown.

Best wishes.
