    Question:

    Hello....
    I started a root canal of a molar. By 1. Dentist visit I had great pain and much inflammation in the tooth, got cleaned and had in addition to antibiotics. There was much a temporary filling and the agreed new time after about 3 weeks. There was a little cracking the temporary filling.
    2. Dentist visit showed that there was still a little inflammation back, was once again cleaned up and put new filling. Since we are so close to christmas – we agreed the first new tandlægetime 11. January. Today, there is so again come up any cracks in the filling and this worries me. There may be something about that there are cracks in the filling? Can a tooth crack? Should I contact my dentist immediately???
    Thank you in advance for the help:)
    Greetings Mette

    Answer:

    Dear Mette,

    You can be quite calm. The temporary fillings dentists use, is not as strong as the permanent fillings. Typically, it can also break off small pieces of the outside that it means something.

    Hope you can use my answer.

    With kind regards
