Crown Restoration for Root Canal Treated Tooth

Drema’s Question : with a general dentist doing a root canal is it normal practice to use a bic lighter from assistants pocket to burn the dental material he then places into the canal? her smoking lighter! is that safe? and do you have to cap or crown a wisdom tooth that has a root canal?

Dentures Guide Answer : Yes, root canal treated wisdom tooth should be restored with a crown. No it’s normal practice but sometimes a dentist should do something not common just to save a tooth. You should ask your dentist because I don’t know what happened.

Drema : Thank you

Dentures Guide : You are welcome.
