I had a root canal done for a tooth, a couple of months ago. My crown came out 8 days back. I did not go back to the dentist, but now a screw came out my tooth. What does this mean? When should I visit a dentist?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
First of all, I would like to explain the treatment that has been done to your tooth according to the details provided by you:
You have to get the screw and crown fixed back in that tooth else it might breakdown more and more. The screw was put in place after root canal treatment as your tooth was badly damaged and needed support to place the crown.
Since it has broken, it needs to be done again to prevent further damage of the tooth. So, visit your dentist immediately to save your tooth.
