molar. I don’t know if...
I had a route canal several years ago on my back right molar. I don’t know if it was posted or had a crown but it fell out last night. Oh and I’m also dentaphobic so I called my dentist last night She said there was no risk of dry socket because the nerves were gone from the previous route canal 2-3 years ago. I have no pain, no sensitivity just no back right molar. I used a small q tip to remove any debris so now it looks like a small socket with a tiny bit of tooth in the back. I have an appointment to see her tomorrow at 12:00 to evaluate the tooth. Even though there is no blood on the q tip is she correct about there being no pain or risk of dry socket because of the route canals? Also what are your thoughts on getting an implant rather than crafting another crown

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
