I have a root canal in my eye tooth on the left side.
Now I need one on my eye tooth on the right side
I'm on antibiotics now, which are giving me nightmares when I sleep for the absess.
My question is: (I've been reading online, this is one article: http://mizar5.com/root.htm
-- are root canals safe?
should I get one?
If I don't I'll have to have the eyetooth pulled and there will be a missing tooth in the front on my mouth.
I was always told you need a root canal to save your tooth (of course)
(I've had one and it has a crown and it's fine)
But I'm reading they can have trouble later....or may not last forever.
what to do? should I get it and see how long it lasts?
I normally wouldn't ask these questions and just get it, but the info I've found doing research is astounding.
I don't want a missing tooth, I already lost two molars
I'm thinking of just getting the root canal on my eyetooth which is what I was told. $1100! I think one dentist is $800.
Honestly a root canal is painful and costly. With technology today I think a better solution is to get an implant. In the long run the implant will be a better choice as sooner or later the root canaled tooth that is crowned will someday need to be replaced. Might as well go with an implant from the get go as that is where the root canal will end up going anyway!
implants are what, like $4,000 or $8,000?
Not sure I can afford that right now ..
I think now they are much less. I have had a few and it was alot less then 4000 for one. It is definitely something you should check into. Also if you go to a University that has a dental school they offer some very interesting options for all dental care.

When is it recommended to get a tooth implant rather than capped.
