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 tissue around the tooth .X ray and periodontal checkup will determine the outcome of the situation .

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. I have never seen or heard of drilling into the sinus thru the six front teeth under the nose. ...Read more
