Why do teeth sometimes hurt or need root canal after a filling?

    A lot of dentist do it as they get more money

    Interesting, what studies are you basing that on? I ask, because studies generally show success rates at circa 90 - 95%.

    And, given the length of clinical time required to do root canal and the cost of the single use endodontic files, Dentists would generally make more doing fillings/cleanings during that time.

    I have had one root canal, can't remember exactly when (roughly early 80s) but I know it was before my daughter was born and she's 36, the dentist at the time told me it would be it would be very expensive, all of 17 old pounds! Luckily I found that dentist as the original one wanted to pull the tooth, one of my front teeth!

    Anyway tooth is still there and I've never had trouble since so I suppose it just depends but it's not always a disaster.
