I HAD TWO CROWNS PUT ON LAST YEAR (2ND AND 3RD FROM REAR ON LEFT BOTTOM) BUT THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO IS SO LARGE FOOD GETS COMPACTED BETWEEN THE TWO AND IT IS EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE AND SOMETIMES PAINFUL. IT IS PAINFUL WHEN FLOSSING AS THE COMPACTED FOOD IS VERY DIFFICULT TO REMOVE AND SOMETIMES BLEEDS DURING THE DIFFICULT FLOSSING. THE 2ND TOOTH UNDERWENT MULTIPLE ROOT CANALS THROUGH THE CROWN. THE DENTIST WHO DID THE CROWNS IS GOING TO REPLACE ONE TO ELIMINATE THE GAP. HE WANTS TO DO THE ONE WITH THE ROOT CANALS RATHER THAN THE OTHER. THIS SEEMS LIKE JUST ASKING FOR MORE TROUBLE WITH THIS TOOTH. WHAT DO YOU THINK. THANX, DOUG

  • If your dentist is going to replace the cown to fill the gap between two teeth then he is right in replacing the dental crown in which multiple root canals are done thru crown as this crown has become weak and chances of breakage and leakage are always there. So according to me you should go for replacement of that crown only. Rest you can discuss with your dentist as it is difficult to comnent without clinical examination. for more info on dental crowns, you can check this link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dental-crowns-72.aspx
