Evaluation needed: Do you have any pain or swelling? What do you mean by a nerve root? There can be some "scar tissue" after a root canal that is not a problem It is not to possible to answer your question without seeing you and having X-ray taken of the area of concern. If your general dentist cannot answer this for you then See an endodontist for an evaluation and peace of mind.
