I am glad I found this great site:-)
Here's my story:
Two years ago, a part of one of my back molars chipped off. It didn’t hurt at all but I still wanted to fix it so I went to the dentist to have it checked out. After taking x-ray, the dentist said he would put a filling on the tooth. While the dentist is working on my tooth, he said I needed a root canal because he found that the crack is all the way to the root. He went on with the root canal procedure. After a few minutes, the dentist told me again that my roots are too curved and he has to sent me to a root canal specialist to finish it. I was sent home with a temporary filling. The that I was referred to will only be able to see me in a week.
I went in for my appointment and finally had the procedure done. Eight months after the my tooth started to have sharp pain to biting down. I went back to the dentist. After taking x-rays and doing a hot and cold sensitivity test, she said the tooth looked fine.
It’s been two years since the canal and the tooth still hurts when I bite down. Does anyone have any ideas what is causing the pain? I have been to another dentist but he also could not see anything wrong. Is this a permanent pain? I would be very thankful for any information you could give me.
