      Default Body rejecting Crown and Rooth Canal

      Good morning,

      I recenty had a rooth canal and Gold crown on one of my molars and now the dentist says she has to keep an eye on it because the X ray revealed that my body is actually rejeting it.

      She says she has only seen this twice in 10 years. She says the other patient was refered to a specialist and specialist said 90 % of time, the body will end up accepting it but if it doesnt, we have to pull it out.

      Any reason why this would be happening?

      Thanks

      I'd be looking for a second opinion.

      Get an endodontist to do an evaluation - a retreat might be in order, rather than just wait and see. Molar root canals are technically very difficult for General dentists to get right.
      It's the 21st Century.......dentistry can and should be painless but we patients come unstuck because all dentists are not created equal

      Thanks for the answers.

      However, I should have been a little clearer on my post.

      My rooth canal was done by an endodontist about 2 years ago and was fine. The problem started when my dentist put a post and crown on it about 3 weeks ago. With the ongoing X ray's during the procedure, she saw something showing that my body was rejecting either the crown or post?
      The tooth as actually started throbbing a little during the day and at night.

      I just wish I did not have to pull the tooth after having spent so much money on it.

      Thanks again.
