Tooth pain started 3 weeks after perm crown. Dentist: wait, see if the nerves correct themselves. 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.

Upper molar crowned, root canalled(same tooth), 3 roots done by X-ray shown, still mild tooth pain always, does this mean 4th? Canal?

Perhaps..: Most upper molars only have 3 canals, but...A 4th is possible. Sometimes a tooth with a root canal needs time to calm down.

It might need a retreat or apicoectomy, or maybe just another round of antibiotics. Either way...I commend you...Good call. ...Read more
