  • hello, i just had a root canal treatment done. The surgeon did not put a crown on for me. It is the front adult tooth. Will it be prone to break? He just said he did some fillings. He charged me $495. After doing the treatment, the ‘heart beat’ sort of sensation is still there and he assured it will be ok in a few weeks. I do not know, but after that treatment, i feel as though another tooth is having that ‘heart beat’ sorta sensation. Is it just my own imagionation due to fear or what? Since the tooth that has the nerves taken out, still has that heart beats, i cant identify clearly.

  • Hi!

    I had RCT done a few years back and now the color of the rubber pulp is getting darker and darker. May I know where I could get an internal bleeching for this tooth which had RCT? Your advice is appreciated!
