A member asked:

A week ago i received a filling of a lower molar which had a 50/50 shot of needing a root canal. i have not had any pain; however, over the past two days my throat has been bothering me. should i be worried about infection even without any tooth pain?

Watch: But don't worry. Probably coincidental. If symptoms worsen inform both your Dentist and your Physician to see if additional evaluation/treatment is recommended.

Unrelated: Your sore throat and tooth are not related. Follow up" with your dentist if your tooth becomes painful. Follow up with your primary care for your throat if you eyed to.
