Hello, i have very bad teeth (which i inherited from my father) and for the past year i have been going to the dentist several times a month for repeated root canals, fillings, ect...
I have a tooth right now, actually, a molar, possibly tooth number 32 that has a hole on the bottom side. I can feel pain, which is ODD because i have had a root canal done on it in the past. They were recently trying to put a temporary crown on it, and guess what? It popped off! So i went back and the made a new temp and put that one on and, again, the crown popped off! (It's been a little over a week sense it's popped off, it only stayed on for 5 minuets each time i had the temp placed!)
I'm actually going to the dentist today at 1:30 for a permanent crown to be placed, the other tooth (This is the same tooth with the hole in it, and has the pain and the temp keep popping off on) and I'm wondering, what might they do to the tooth? I'm hoping they'll do another root canal so i do not feel anymore pain. I'm also wondering about what they might do concerning the temp crown, it's obvious it's NOT going to stay on because each time it popped off! Do you think the tooth may have to be extracted? I am honestly okay with that if that's the last resort, i have had 3 molars and all my front teeth extracted in the last 2 years, I'm honestly used to pain.
But yeah, the questions i want answered:
1. "Why won't the temp stay on? Each time it popped off i wasn't eating or doing anything for the temp to pop off, i was just sitting in the car with my mom and all the sudden, "POP!". It happened each time!"
2. "Why do i still feel pain in the tooth i had a root canal on?"
3. "What do you think they might do? Let's say if they do attempt putting a temp on again, and it pops off, let's say they do it 10 times and it kept popping off, what might they do then?"
