Question:
Root Canal: Hello, just yesterday, I had a root canal done on my 2nd to last upper molar.

The dentist put in a temporary filling but did not take a casting of the tooth for a crown. I have an appointment one week from now.

He told me at that appointment he was going to perform a full exam of my teeth to see if there are any more major problems before making a cast and installing it.

I've had root canals before and never encountered this before. Any thoughts on this would help. Thank you ...Visitor from CO

Answer:
It is likely that your dentist is being mindful of certain bite dynamics that could potentially cause an unfavorable bite pressure that could interfere with a "new biting force" element in your overall dentition.

Unbalanced bite pressures can cause treatment failures.
