Shooting Pain After Root Canal
What kind of dentist should I come to be diagnosed? (endodontist, oral and maxillofacial surgeon, or periodontist) i've got root canals for my front teeth two years ago. Since last year, every time i bite food with my front teeth, a shooting pain happens
Sometimes when I drink something cold, my tooth, or what feels like it, shoots a nerve that lasts a good five seconds. Does that mean root canal?
Have sharp shooting point on my lower row of teeth when the pain comes just randomly hot or cold doesnt bring the pain on would i need a root canal ?
Perhaps: First the cause of the pain would have to be determined. If infected tooth, probably. If fractured tooth root, probably not. Etc. You need to be examined to determine the source of your pain and then the appropriate treatment. The sooner this is addressed, the less complex (expensive) the "fix." Please call Dentist now. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
