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

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
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
Re-evaluate: Both root canal treatment and crown preparation are surgical procedures. Healing interval required. If pain not diminishing after 48 hours return to Dentist for reevaluation. May be anything from a crown that needs a minuscule occlusal adjustment, to a root canal that requires revision by an Endodontist. Don't hesitate to call your Dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
