A 20-year-old female asked:
is it normal to experience occasional sharp pain in the tooth after a root canal?

How long: How long ago was the root canal? If recent, episodes should gradually fade. If it's been a while, you may have a fractured tooth. See the Dentist that treated you. A second opinion by a root canal specialist, an Endodontist, May be in order.
