I had a root canal about 14 years ago. About a year ago I was having pain so the dentist refered me to specialist to have the root capped. Now the crown fell off with the post. I went in to have it put in and the dentist did the procedure but did not the post in. It fell out again and it looks like I do not have a lot of tooth left.
I read some of the questions, it seems that my crown was loose before and my tooth decayed away under the crown. Can I still have a crown put on or does it sound like I have lost the tooth? ...Denise in CA
Denise, I cannot answer your question without seeing x-rays and examining it. Get a few opinions from local dentists.
