Hi,
I have a surgery coming up soon. I have a teeth is weak, had gotten root canal on it. I have to get crown done as well. Braces will be after that. They will give general Anesthesia to get me to sleep. Will this procedure pop out or break the weak teeth? I am very concerned. Please Advice. I already called the hospital, they won't let me speak to anesthesiologists, only before the surgery.
Thank you

Anesthesia personnel will visit you the night before...state your concerns to them. While intubation can possibly cause tooth issues, I think it's rare. You could also ask your dentist.

I never had that "visit" the night before my hip surgery. Got an intro just before going into surgery.

Why not do more dental work after surgery, if that's what I understand.

yea, that's one solution, it is just that I have been searching orthodontist and dentist for a year and half now. Finally I got my root canal done. Braces are gonna take long to get off. I want to start soon as possible. it is long story.. but I have been juggling a lot.

Don't do stuff in haste, take time with decisions that are elective can always be a good way to think and do life things.

Good point. However, won't I be wasting my time if there is other ways around it not that harmful etc. Only way to find out is the answer. I will wait if there is chances of poping out etc.

Point out the loose tooth to the anesthesiologist, and they will do their best to protect the tooth. After you are asleep, you may have a tube placed in your throat to secure breathing under general anesthesia. Some people chew vigorously on that tube while coming out of anesthesia, and may break off a loose tooth. The anesthesiologist will tape the tube away from that tooth, but it still may break off if it is loose. Dental damage is a recognized risk of general anesthesia, as it will be written in the anesthesia consent that you would have to sign before undergoing anesthesia, so hospitals nowadays generally do not reimburse for the loss of a severely decayed/loose tooth during anesthesia.

You should have a temporary cap on that root canal tooth.

Even so, there are no guarantees with teeth under any conditions. Including biting into a sandwich.

Speak with your dentist who can inform you about these things and alternatives in case that tooth goes bad. The dentist is the tooth expert not the anesthesiologist. He probably already told you if you lose that tooth, the only alternatives if you qualify...are an implant- Or a bridge. (3 crowns together)
