I had a very small crack in a tooth on the side of my mouth. It was so minor that my dentist
had a hard time finding it. However it was causing me pain
when I ate small particulate like bacon bits. I asked for a root canal
, since the last time I got a crown
on a live tooth, it continued to be sensitive. I am sixty years old with very good, hard teeth that have relatively few repairs and this was a relatively strong tooth, except for the sensitivity
. Can I get by without a crown?
JA: Have you noticed any recent swelling? Do you have any tooth pain
Customer: No, just had a successful root canal
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.
Customer: Obviously an automated response...you have everything now.
