Unfinished root canal treatment

I have had unfinished root canal treatment on one of my back teeth but I didn't go back to finish it. Becouse it hurt so much and now my tooth has broke in two. I still have the long pin looking things inside the root!

What will the dentist do to take the tooth out since it is broken?

Will I have to be injected agin to remove the damaged tooth? Will it be a painfull procedure removing the damaged tooth?

Extraction NEW
by: Sharon B., RDH

I'm sorry to hear about your fractured tooth. Unfortunately when we delay putting a crown on a tooth that needs a root canal the tooth usually cannot stand up to normal use, and may fracture or decay.

Extracting a fractured tooth is the same as a usual extraction. Of course you will need local anesthetic unless you want to feel what is going on. Ask your dentist for nitrous oxide gas to help you relax before your injection.

Your best option to replace this tooth would now be a dental implant. Talk to your implant specialist before the extraction to see if it can be placed the same day. It will need to be planned out in advance.

RCT TREATED TOOTH ARE PROBLEMATIC EXTRACTION BUT YOUR DENTIST SHOULD BE CAREFUL IN EXTRACTIING WITHOUT DAMAGING MUCH BONE.
ANYWAY IT IS JUST AN INJECTION WHICH CAN MAKE YOU GO FOR EXTRACTION WITHOUT PAIN
MAYBE YOU HAD A BAD EXPERINCE BUT ALL DENTISTS ARE NOT LIKE THAT
GO FOR IMPLANT AFTERWARDS

Complete treatment NEW
by: Johnson

After the root canal treatment crown is placed to protect the tooth from further decaying. So I suggest you to complete the root canal treatment. There may be pulp formed inside your infected teeth and that is the reason for the pain EHR Software. Antibiotics are available to get rid of pain.

Well this is something that require a good deal of attention and I assume that is what is missing in most of the people these days. People mostly wait for the last moment to do stuffs and end up in problems. magnetic balls
