A 30-year-old female asked:

Root Canals can fail: Upper molars have great variation in their nerve canal structure. It can be difficult to find all the canals in order to properly clean and fill them. If a canal is missed during the original root canal, it can become painful and infected later - sometimes many years later. Another possible cause could be a crack in the root. Your dentist will do tests to determine the cause.

Unclear: Your questions are unclear. Jaw size discrepancy problems need to be addressed by an Orthodontist. They may also work in conjunction with an Oral Surgeon if the problem is severe. At your age, surgery may be indicated. Your lip may appear heavy because of the position of your upper teeth/jaw.
