I had a root canal done on a molar. This tooth already had a crown so the endodontist had to drill a hole thru the crown to do the root canal. I am supposed to go back to my regular dentist to have this hole filled, however he can not get me in for an appointment for 2 months. Is it Ok to leave this hole open for that long?

  • If you do notget this hole filled and there is leakage the again the root canals can get infected In that case the root canal treatment wil be a faiure So it is better to get that hole filled ASAP So try to take tha appointment from your dentist.
