Tooth Sensitive To Touch After Root Canal
I had root canal treatment almost 3 years ago. The tooth is now in pain, i believe it is infected and sensitive to touch. Amoxcillin any help?
Possibly: Depending on how the tooth was restored after the root canal was completed will be a determining factor as to the cause of a possible infection. Recurrent growth of bacteria may temporarily respond to the antibiotics, but long term prognosis can be determined by your dentist or endodontist.

After root canal on canine tooth #11, iam curious to know what are the symptoms/how it feels if the drill touches or drills into the sinus cavity floor?
Not going to happen: The root of tooth #11 lies under the floor of the nose and not in the sinus cavity. You should be numb with local anesthetic so you will feel pressure , but should not feel pain.
