I have cavity since 4 Months. So, is it possible to have a cancer from this cavity? Am I eligible for Root Canal Treatment after 4 months of symptoms found? Please do give some treatment advice.

It won't lead to cancer. Don't worry As far as having root canal treatment is done then if you have pain then kindly get an X-ray done of the tooth having cavity may be you will have to get root canal treatment done followed by a crown/cap. Otherwise get the caries removed and get the cavity filled with a tooth coloured restoration. Brush your teeth twice daily using correct brushing technique to maintain your oral hygiene.

A RCT is not a replacement of an implant. A bridge can be used to replace a tooth. But the disadvantage over an implant is that adjoining good teeth will have to be trimmed.

My 18 month old daughter has got a blackened front tooth. Today we consulted a doctor who advised that tooth is dead now and gums are getting infected. The dead tooth needs to be extracted immediately. We took second opinion from another doctor who confirmed that there is infection but can be treated with root canal. When my daughter was 9 months old we noticed a pinkish tinge on this tooth which gradually kept on darkening and is almost black now. Need help whether we should get the tooth extracted or get root canal done or consult someone else if it can be treated through medicines.

Dear lybrate-user ji, the tooth is dead for sure and is due to some old insult to the tooth which would have gone unnoticed. If the bone is healthy and not mobile, we can save it 100% and an E max laminate or crown can be placed and that shall solve the problem. For more please consult.

I am a 22 year old girl and I am going through the process of root canal and after 2 sittings he needs to put an optical fibre along with capping because just capping won't do. Please suggest me what should I do.

When the pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed, septic or lifeless, one needs to go through the root canal treatment.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.
