Dental teeth care, Not sure if my son really need a root canal and crown

Over the weekend my son had was playing basketball where he was elbowed in the mouth.  One of his side teeth got pushed in.  He immediately during the game pushed the tooth back into place.  However, knowing this happen I took him to the dentist on Monday where I was told he should have a root canal and crown done on that tooth.

I am not sure it this is really necessary, I have dental insurance so it not like it would not be covered I just not sure if he really needs so much work.  He says the tooth feels fine and it is not really lose any more.  What should I do?  Should I get a second opinion?  Or just have the dental work done?

    Sometimes when you knock a tooth like your son did you can kill the nerve making the tooth go dark. That may be why the dentist is suggesting have a root canal done.

    However if you do not feel good about that choice then yes get a second opinion. It is better to do something you are sure about then have regrets latter on.

    My four year old did the same thing. Lucky for me it was a baby tooth so we did not have a root canal done. However even though the tooth did not fall out. It did get a little darker.

    Get a second opinion. It can not hurt and you will feel better about the choice you make regarding your son’s teeth.
