Persistent pain

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: GracePoe  (8 years ago)
Dear all,

I had a root canal done by an endodontist and a crown put on by my general dentist on tooth #4 two months ago. Two weeks later, I got pain from this tooth. It started as a mild pain, which became more intense as days went by. I took antibiotics for a week but my symptom did not improve. My dentist said everything was fine with the tooth. Could it be that the crown was not done properly? Or did the endodontist miss something? The decay on this tooth was deep so I am guessing that he may have missed something in there, which is causing the pain now. Any insights? Thanks

Could be:

Referred pain from sinusitis
A missed canal.
An overfill.
A short fill
A vertical root fracture
A treatment failure for no good reason.

Eventually the endodontist will find the "smoking gun." Don't give up.
