This can be managed with Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). I may also be present if there was an infection in the bone as a result of the death of the nerve. If the discomfort does not slowly resolve contact the dentist who performed the procedure for instructions. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My tooth hurts when im upside down or bend down. What can be causing the pain? I had a root canal done on same tooth about 3 years ago.
Get the tooth checkd: The concerning part here is the past history of a root canal. Many upper molar teeth commonly have complexities that contribute to a later infection. This infection can often spread to the sinus, so the 2 could be linked. I would not take an antibiotic without first being evaluated. An endodontist (preferrably one with a ct scanner) and that uses a micrscope would be best able to assess you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Multiple causes?: It is possible that (1) the root canal treatment is not fully completed. (2) it is "completed" but a canal was "missed" and a nerve is still signaling hot / cold sensitivities.

Root canal? Wait?
Heat hurts and can't chew food
RCT: Sensitivity to heat is especially a classic sign of nerve involvement and the need for root canal therapy. Pain on biting pressure can be merely the bite being high and the need to adjust the bite. However, both symptoms combined along with the course of events that you describe would make the need for rct very likely. I think 3 weeks is long enough to wait for resolution.
