Root canal was done four months back in hyderabad but the problem is instead of cap my doctor did temporary filling now the filling is gone and space has formed. Is there any permanent solution for this. Kindly help me.

A temporary filling is generally placed only for a week and has to be changed to permanent filling followed by a crown.if a filling is gone and the tooth is open for a period of more than 6 months ,it is generally advised to get a root canal treatment redone followed by a permanent filling and a crown to make sure that it is fine.of course,this is an absolute foolproof plan and the call for retreatment depends on the dentist you consult.it is not mandatory but is nevertheless a safer long term alternative.hope this helps.
consult an Endodontist(root canal specialist).
a ceramic crown is not mandatory.the material for the crown is not important.if you are conscious about your appearance only then go for ceramic.
We require to do permanent filling on the root canal treated teeth! Before that we need to take X-ray and see the condition of the remaining tooth structure and root canal filling! If filling is more then the original tooth structure then we need to place crown also!!! Do it soon! All the best
As a Root canal specialist I advice you to get a permanent core build up done followed by a crown for this tooth ASAP.It may get reinfected or chances of fracture are high if you leave it without a cap.Regards.Dr Sumanmakam,DentalArts,Jayanagar 5th block,Bangalore.
Yes. As far as things are concerned plz get an X-ray done to check whether any reinfection is present in the teeth in which root canal is being done. If everything seems fine. The. Proceed with a permanent filling and a crown for getting the tooth back to its normal shape and contour. So that it could serve its function for YOU.

1st of all, visit your nearest dentist get your x-ray done by wearing lead apron (if delivery not happened), if it is not complete, continue with treatment, If your root canal is completed, go for permanent (silver) filling
Get crown to that tooth, it is necessary
flossing required in adjacent teeth, to remove food particles after crowning
Dear Maam !. The Doctor might have not completed your Treatment due to your Pregnancy if any. Please visit your Dentist and complete your treatment when you have weaned your Child onto Baby milk from the market.
1. This applies to you only if you are still Breastfeeding. Avoid certain Drugs like antibiotics and treatments like Root Canal as this can affect the Milk.
2. Check with a dentist for Temporary filling if your still not crossed your Breastfeeding stage.
3. Complete your treatment with Cap only after you have weaned your child.
U require a permanent crown over the root canal treated tooth other wise the tooth will break
