Molar pain next to tooth that just did root canal. Malocclusion?

Lots of reasons. Could be the sore tooth has issues that need to be addressed, such as cavity, split, etc. Could be referred pain from the root canal treated tooth as the infection clears and the area heals. Could be an occlusal problem, with change in the way teeth meet as adjacent teeth are reshaped. In any case, please call your dentist and let him/her take a look. Probably a simple fix.
Not likely. Sounds more like a dental issue. Go visit your dentist or oral surgeon.
INFORMATION NEEDED. Not likely that the root canal is associated with the next door molar pain unless the rc was done over a yr ago then possibility exists. Usually malocclusion does not cause molar pain. Best advice see your dentist and if possible go back to the dentist that did the rc.
Molar Pain. If the tooth that had the root canal is hitting the tooth below/above it that is normal. We normally take teeth out of occlusion when doing root canal to make the patient more comfortable. If the tooth is out of occlusion it may be referring pain to the tooth next to it; see your dentist to determine the cause.
Could be referred. Many times after a adjacent tooth root canal, the tooth next to the treated on may also be sore. It might be referred pain from the serious procedure that went on 'nesx door' or it may be something to do with the occlusion. You need to contact the doctor that did your root canal and have the adjacent tooth tested and also looked at for any occlusal irregularities.
Unlikely. Malocclusion unlikely since that would have existed prior to the root canal. Sometimes pain is referred from one tooth (root canal tooth) to adjacent teeth. Have the teeth examined by dentist who did root canal.

What is the advantage of an upper 2nd molar extraction or further root canal. I was told I have a hot tooth?

Depends. It would depend on the condition of the rest of your mouth. I would suggest seeing a dentist who is willing to explain the advantages and disadvantages of each option. Read more...
Root canal! Your second molar not only provides support the first molar, but it helps in the chewing process, by compacting the food against the lower molar. By removing it, you are weakening the first upper molar, and rendering the lower molar pretty useless. All the chewing forces then will be redirected to the remaining molars. A hot tooth should be easily handled by an endodontist. Read more...

What is the advantage of an upper 2nd molar extraction with regards to further root canal? I was told I have a hot tooth.

Pain. If you have the tooth extracted, the source of the pain will be gone, but once the tooth is gone, it is much more difficult and costly to replace it. If possible i recommend saving the tooth with a root canal and crown. With a hot tooth, you are likely be sore for a while regardless. Tissues are inflammed and it takes time to control them before they fell better. Good luck. Read more...

Your call. Save the tooth, and you will have that much more biting surface to chew with. You will also be putting less wear and tear on the other posterior teeth. Extract the tooth, and your bite can shift, your other teeth will absorb more force and can break down sooner, and if you decide to replace it with an implant, it will cost more than to have fixed it in the first place. Save it if you can. Read more...

Had a root canal and a crown 4 weeks ago on a top back molar. Now tooth is sensitive to only hot liquids and food. Can it go away on its own?

Probably not. If it is definitely the same tooth it sounds like a canal was missed-upper molars can have 1 to 5 or 6 canals. The fact that you feel hot indicates that there is still live tissue inside. See your dentist to determine if there is in fact another canal or there is the possibility of referred pain from another tooth. I would recommend having it evaluated by an endodontist-a root canal specialist. Read more...
Root canal hurts. The first thing your dentist needs to check is the bite. If the bite is off you will be sensitive to hot and cold and maybe have a dull ache or inflammation and bleeding around the gums. You be clenching or grinding at night that can make it worse.

Had a root canal on molar 6 months ago, no crown. Was eating and some of the tooth broke. Will an extraction hurt less since the roots should be gone?

Molar extraction. Maybe maybe not. The physical experience of extraction is unlikely to be diminished due to a prior root canal. Despite the break of the tooth, you can still opt for a crown on that molar. Discuss with your dentist and try to preserve teeth as it helps prevent atrophy of mandible and maxilla. Read more...
