root canals aren't worth it. I've had four done in my lifetime, one has already been pulled years ago and two others are now fillingless and one is abscessed. once my blood pressure is a little better those two are coming out. the only decent one was capped but after 12 years or so, the cap seems to be wearing and it feels weird sometimes. I honestly think that root canals are simply a money making move in dentistry, you pay for the initial eval, then pay for a more qualified person to perform the root canal, pay down the road for a follow-up, pay again about 5 years later to get the broken shell of a dead tooth yanked out of your jaw. get them pulled, especially if your insurance isn't the greatest, you'll end up way better off.

This is the fifth post I have seen about "genetics" being the reason people have failing teeth. As if people don't drink soda like its a major food group.

I agree, to be honest. But I am in a different situation... I got a root canal done and need it redone because it is filling with liquid supposedly, other than that it doesn't bother me but the root canal'd tooth next to it does bother me occasionally. Get your teeth filled or crowned if they're just sensitive due to the pulp being exposed, but honestly... Save yourself the time and money and get your tooth pulled early, if you can afford a bridge or implant. If not I would get the root canal depending on where it is, since the crowns are usually covered under insurance with RCT, and save up for an implant/bridge later on

I am pretty sure if that was your complain then the dentist you go to sucks big time. Root canals if done properly give no problem at all for decades. But yes,the life of a crown is about 10-12 years after which you just have to refit or get it remade again. Crown life also depends on the things to eat,for instance if you chew gum a lot from that side,ita going to be much less! But,extracting the tooth and placing an implant will cost you a fortune as compared to a root canal!

Same thing, had a few root canals done, lost 1 of them already, other one is coming out soon. Better off getting them pulled because it never stopped hurting for me.. I also went to different dentists and paid hundreds of euros.

Both sides of my family have had weak or just terrible teeth including having to have all teeth pulled in their 20's. Shockingly, people tend to know if their genetics are just bad. Pop doesn't help but for fucks sake, I see too many people acting like genetics don't play a role in how good/bad your teeth are

I feel your pain. At least you didn't have to have your crown checked only to find out you need to see an endodontist (for the root canal), a peridontist (for the gingivitis that runs in the family) and an orthodontist (to correct the mess the first orthodontist did the first time, hence the crown) before seing your dental surgeon (to replace your baby teeth that are starting to get tired of being still there) and your dentist again (for that pesky cavity). Aah, genetics...
