How do you know when your molar tooth is dying?

Pain in my upper last molar tooth, so unsure if it's dying or not? If tooth is dying does it pay to get a root canal plus crown on it, or have it extracted ? What are the chances of having to do an extraction if root canal and crown are done? Can a molar tooth be ok with a root canal and crown, or will it have to be removed anyway? What happens to the other teeth if a molar tooth is removed?

It is a bad sign and a sign of expenses and grief to come.

You need to get it checked at a dentist. None of us on Yahoo can see it from here.

If the tooth is valuable (easy to see in your smile and a big molar necessary for chewing) you should do your best to save it. That includes root canal and crown. Unless the root canal is done by a poor dentist who cracks the tooth it is likely the tooth will be perfect after that work.

If you ignore it you will be in more and more pain as it rots away waiting for the extraction. If the tooth is extracted the bone will tend to diminish near it and the adjacent ones will start to loosen.  (+ info)

What does it mean if the tooth is said to have lost part of its bone?

How can one tell if a tooth has lost some of its bone??? From its gum? Or any other symptons?
For what reason would the tooth lost its bone? How can this be improved? Is it possible for the tooth to undergo root canal treatment later?
There is no decay or cavity on the tooth and it is not shaking. A little waggy or pain sometime. Can this be improved through brushing?
Anyone who know or have this knowledge, please kindly advise.
Thank you very much.

loss of bone around the tooth is next stage of gingivitis ..called pericoronities..deep scaling has to done .u must do daily compulsory gum massage over the area...  (+ info)

How can you make a wiggly tooth fall faster?

I have a wiggly tooth. On one side the tooth is moving the other is moving but not alot. So I want to make it fall faster. I also want to make my other teeth fall down so my new teeth won't grow up behind them when they still haven't fell down.

If you want your tooth to fall out and you are just a young child you should eat apples and just play with it with your tongue. I think if you tie a rope around it is not a good idea because it might hurt if its not ready. If you want to pull it out without hurting you should get a gel call Orejell. Its an numbing gel you put in your mouth. It might taste gross but i use it for things like this too!!

Good Luck with you tooth =)  (+ info)

How long Does it take for a Tooth to grow back?

What is the best and healthiest way to whiten your teeth without hurting your tooth enamel?

I have tried all those tooth pastes that say it makes you teeth whiter but it has not helped at all. I want to bleach my teeth but I heard that is really bad for your teeth. Is there any cheap and healthy way to whiten your teeth without hurting them?


There is no best way to whiten teeth its chemicals your putting on. Use a whitening toothpaste on a daily basis like crest and try the crest white strips they really work but be careful your teeth will hurt in the beginning. If you drink coffee, tea, wine or soda that can stain your teeth so make sure once u whiten your teeth to stay away from those things. If you smoke that definitley stains your teeth. My advice as a dental hygienist try the strips first and if your not happy with the results u can even try the whitening trays from your dentist or zoom which is an hour procedure.  (+ info)

What medication do they usually prescribe after you have a tooth pulled?

I'm getting braces and they need to extract one of my teeth on the side of my upper jaw. The tooth is pretty much halfway from the last tooth to the middle teeth. What kind of medication do they usually prescribe for that? I had an upper wisdom tooth pulled once, it didn't require any drilling or anything. They just popped it right out. They gave me percocet and an antibiotic. Do you think it'll be the same with this tooth extraction?

I just had a tooth pulled yesturday and they game me Tylenol 3 w/ codine  (+ info)

How long does it take for a pulled tooth to grow in?

Last week, I got one of my back baby teeth pulled. I can see the permanent tooth breaking through the gum. I had an orthodontist appointment today, and the orthodontist said that my braces will come off when the tooth grows in. So obviously, my question is, how long will it take for this tooth to grow in? Thanks in advance.

It depends. I also got a tooth pulled out but that was more than a month ago and it still isn't showing. Some take long to grow back and some don't. It just depends.  (+ info)

How much would it cost to have my tooth capped?

A part of my tooth in the back of the mouth chipped off yesterday, leaving a hole in the tooth. I'm worried about food and junk getting stuck inside the tooth where its hard to brush and getting infected.

My dental insurance doesnt activate until October.

Should i wait till October to schedule an appointment? I'm pretty short on cash right now.

How much would it cost to have that tooth capped or filled in?


You need to get this attended to right away. When a piece of tooth comes off due to decay it means the decay is pretty serious. Your doc can just put in a bonded restoration to hold you if a crown is needed or maybe that's all you need. Cost is hard to determine without seeing you but under $200 for the restoration.  (+ info)
