Root canals are temporary stop gaps as I understand them. I've had a few in my long life and one area is holding good for over 30 yrs...one is giving me some issues that I had done about 10 yrs ago and I'm keeping out of pain by using oil of oregano drops, myrrh tincture and a solution I make up. I don't want to spend thousands on dental work now and then more thousands for replacements. I get flare ups now and then but swear by oil of oregano for infections.

For anybody with problems with their root canal; make sure you talk to your original endodontist. Mine, kind of, warranties his work. At least he has not charged me when I did have problems. I am not telling you that they are all the same; but if you don't ask, you will never know. Of course, as we get older and have more root canals, it is harder to keep track of what dentist did what. There is also a chance we will outlive them to even ask!

Good point. Sometimes there are challenges getting a good fill or maybe a small perf... If it's within a few years most specialists will warranty their work.

Five years later, I've done nothing. It still aches a little here and there, but nothing I can't live with. I have to get the crown redone soon, though, as the margin is showing because my gums are receding. Yay. I'm going to ask my dentist at my next cleaning, which will be in April. (I forgot this thread existed; someone repped one of my posts on it!)
