Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Around a month ago, I had a dental trauma on my lower three incisors. The teeth have moved slightly from their original position. My dentist has advised me for a root canal for all the three teeth. Now before two days, he started the process, and one of my teeth has turned black. What can I do now?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern. I feel that the dentist has to stabilize your teeth first if they are mobile. It can be done by splinting. RCT (root canal treatment) is usually done to the teeth if the trauma has involved the pulp. Discoloration or pink teeth usually occurs in injury. If the RCT is done, place a crown over the treated tooth, and the discoloration will go off definitely. I can guide you better if you send the photograph of the teeth with an X-ray.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
