Root Canals Ask The Endodontist Ara Nazarian Question:
I had complete mouth reconstruction including several implants about 1 1/2 years ago here in Indonesia.

Now my bottom left wisdom tooth which had a root canal and crown is very painful.

I went back to the dentist and she said she discovered a third root and started working on it and gave me pain meds and antibiotics. 3 days later its still very very painful (and I can stand pain).

Also one of my front implants is a little loose is this normal? What should be done? ...Visitor from Indonesia

Doing a root canal on a wisdom tooth isn't something that is recommended widely in this country. The molar teeth endure extreme biting forces, which can make any nearly any brittle, root canaled tooth fail.

In general terms, in this country, when a wisdom tooth becomes problematic, it is extracted, along with its opposing tooth so super eruption doesn't occur and disturb the patient's bite.

If you have a loose implant, it needs to be treated IMMEDIATELY so you don't have the risk of the implant destroying your jawbone material.

Oocclusal problems (lateral forces) or a graft-tissue regeneration issue affecting osseointegration may have caused that implant to fail.

A Nazarian, DDS
