Brief background story: I got hit in the face with a basketball...what must be nigh on 5 years ago now and chipped a front tooth (very very small chip). I went to Dentist at the time and he rounded it abit and all was grand.
Now though it's giving me abit of bother, I'm guessing the knock at the time killed the nerve?
I know nothing about Dental work, I'm assuming Root Canal is an option, I think Dentist mentioned it at the time,
Looking at the vid though, I don't know, looks like an awful lot of messing and chemicals, hermi something or other seals.....fugi 9, don't like the look of it at all.
Guy in Vid mentioned 40 mins, I've heard hours mentioned by people only a few months back, how long does it take, for a front tooth?
Should I just get it out?
Will a Root Canal definitely take...or could it fail after a few months? What will it cost? How much will a front denture cost?
Should I just get it out?
Of all teeth to happen to....and I haven't even got a filling.
Following trauma, a dead tooth is strong possibility, is the tooth darkened, is it sore to touch or to bite on, is there a swelling or gumboil in the gum above it's root????
Upper front teeth have single roots and usually single canals. Success should be quite high (95%ish )and should be restorable if you say it just has a small filling. No medical or surgical treatment has 100% success....
Number of visits varies depending on your specific situation and dentists methods. Probably one or two. Maybe 45mins to an hour at each visit....
Cost, a few hundred... not sure...
Should you get the tooth out?? If this is a savable tooth- then no way, save it.... You will eventually pay the same or more in dentures/bridges/implants....
Tooth looks perfect, not darkened, no swelling or boils, it's sore to move with my hand, like it's loose.
No, no filling, I meant that I don't even have a filling on any tooth and now this happens. Tiny chip on the edge is all it had.
Jaysus, I thought a denture would be the end of it, I'll have to look up bridges and implants.
I always prefer to save a tooth op (not a dentist) Ive had 2 root canals done by the same specialist the first one about 5 years ago and the second one about a month ago. It costs money but best to keep your own set!
If the tooth can be kept, then do everything in your power to keep it, replacement is more difficult and costly. Root canal is a routien and successful treatment if done correctly. Dont allow yourself to get into a cycle of removing your body parts when the can be fixed.
Save the tooth! Years to come you will be glad you did
What are the currently used products Dentists use in Ireland to perform Root Canal on a Tooth?
Same things that are used in any country. However the materials are not as relevant as the care and attention of the dentist to the job. There are so many different techniques and various combinations of materials that you would need a 3 year masters in endodontics to fully understand all of them. Best see a endodontist if quality is your primary concern.
Gutta Percha of some form with a Zinc Oxide and eugenol sealer are the generally used materials, there are 100 bands on the market so you would have to ask the dentist doing the job. All the materials are biocompatable that how they work.
Would a normal Dentist be a no no for Root Canals?
Is their toxicity concerns with products used?
Leakage differences with the different Techniques used.
If the Canal wasn't successful for whatever reason and extraction was needed does all of the filler come out with the tooth on extraction?
How often are X Rays of the Tooth needed for after the Canal? Yearly?
Ah yeah, your over researching this. Root canals work, if they didn't dentists would not do them. No there are no toxicity problems, yes you will find a article on any topic. You either want to save the tooth or not. General dentists an do root canals.
When will this be available?
