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. A fracture of the tooth could cause the same symptoms and render the tooth hopeless. ...Read more

The body also has it's own process of dealing with issues and this may be different from person to person. If you still have concerns just call and schedule with your current dentist to review the area and help ease your concerns ...Read more

If the tooth is still sensitive, it's most likely another tooth. Patients have difficulty sometimes pinpointing exactly which tooth causes pain. See your dentist for an evaluation. ...Read more
