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

I had a root canal 3 months ago but tooth is still sensitive to hot. What could be the reason?

RCT sensitivity: I will assume that the rct was completed. Properly treated root canal therapy teeth cannot have sensitivity to cold, hot or sweets. 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
