    I got root canals at the age of 11 I am now 21. I once had to get them replaced because of an infection when I was roughly 16-17 years of age. I haven't had a regular check up in about 2 years. I am just concerned and anxious because I know it's a real thing that people die from root canal infections. But I am working on getting health insurance so I can go get them checked. Do they look bad?

    More or less I was just checking if it looks bad to calm my nerves for the time being while I wait to go to the dentist. It might be another month unless it looks bad to people more knowledgeable than me then I might try to go sooner.

    Can't tell you anything useful from photos. The Xrays are the real picture I need. If you have no swelling or pain in gums above teeth, then prob going OK.

    Ok thank you. I will be going to the dentist probably in about a month but if it's urgent I will be going sooner. It doesn't seem urgent currently. No swelling.
