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
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 2 more doctor answers
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?
I have a vague/blunt shooting pain inside my vagina (birth canal area) i can only feel it up the left wall, its really annoying?

Yes and No: You probably had you mouth open for quite a while and your muscle is sore. Your gum may be irritated from the clamp. The disinfectant used to clean the root canal can irritate as well. If you don't feel better after 2 days call your doctor (or sooner if you're concerned). Meanwhile, take whatever you dentist prescribed or Ibuprofen 600mg every 6 hours. You should not be in extreme pain, howeve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's ok: When doing a root canal, your dentist places a clamp around your teeth, and sometimes this creates some gum pain for a few days after treatment. They also use some irrigation solutions that can cause the tissue to turn white. It is a temporary condition, and should soon resolve. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call your dentist, and they can coach you more. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
