When : When ever you have extended discomfort following treatment you should contact the doctor who is treating you and discuss your symptoms with them. In an ideal situation when root canal therapy is complete the post operative response is uneventful. However there are a number of conditions that do cause pain afterwards and the causes need to be eliminated. First of all, when you close your teeth together are you aware of the root treated tooth striking or touching before the other teeth and does hurt to close your teeth together. If it is uncomfortable on touching the tooth or temporary may be high in the bite and need adjusting. The process of treating a canal may cause material to pass through the end of the tooth and that can cause an inflammatory reaction. Please call you doctor now.

I had a root canal 3 weeks ago and just had the crown put in, after a week I have such a dull ache and my tooth is sensitive to hot, is it infected?

Second opinion: Please get that tooth checked again for peri apical pathosis or it could be the periodontal situation . The tissue around the tooth .X ray and periodontal checkup will determine the outcome of the situation . Also have the dentist check the occlusion or if there any premature contact with opposing tooth after placing the crown. ...Read more

I had a root canal treatment done on a tooth one year ago. It has never settled. Recent x-rays show nothing. I have constant dull ache all the time. What should I do?

I had a root canal treatment done on a tooth one year ago. It has never settled. Recent x-rays show nothing. I have constant dull ache all the time. What should I do?

Lingering pain: If it wasn't done by an endodontist, see one to evaluate. There can be many reasons. Recurrent infection not visible on xray, missed canals, fracture, trauma due to bite issues, etc. Sometimes there is no explanation, and it is like phantom pain after an amputation. The remaining nerve still reacts as if there is nerve in the tooth, can even continue after extraction. There are pain specialists. ...Read more

I have a root canal that is over 10 years old. I am currently abroad in Paris and it has a dull bad pain with presssure. What are my options abroad?

Seek Treatment: From your symptoms, the root canal may be failing. I would recommend a referral to a dentist or to an walk-in-clinic. I would ice the area 20 minutes every 2 hours and start taking ibuprofen, if available, until you are seen. Antibiotics may be needed to help improve your symptoms and relieve the pressure. I hope you are able to seek treatment. ...Read more

I have pasta on my teeth but I'm wondering why despite the teeth were sealed outside, the teeth ache after years and it leads me to have root canal?

I have pasta on my teeth but I'm wondering why despite the teeth were sealed outside, the teeth ache after years and it leads me to have root canal?

Pasta?: I assume you mean plaque, an accumulation of bacteria and food debris, or Tarter, calcified plaque. Sealants protect the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the teteth, not the smooth surfaces. Sounds like you have a combination of inproper oral hygiene and lack of regular professional care. Please seek immediate help. ...Read more
