I had a tooth extracted because it was cracked to the root. I got a bridge to replace it. I also got a filling in one of the teeth that would anchor the bridge. When the temporary plastic was put on, the root of the filled tooth was exposed. It was extremely sensitive. Two days later, this tooth hurt so badly. I also got headache. I went to the dentist. When he tapped the tooth, it was so tender. He then said I needed a root canal on this tooth. He referred me to an endodontist.
When I went to see the endodontist, he performed x-rays and some tests on the tooth and confirmed I do need a root canal. It’s the fifth day since I had the done but my symptoms are still there; extreme sensitivity to cold, toothache and headache. Could this be sinus infection? I really doubt that I needed the canal. It did not give me any relief at all. Any comments? Does anyone have any ideas what is happening?
Any advice would be highly appreciated.
