To jimschnell, its been 8 months now, it has been a very slow healing process,experienced all kinds of weird sensations, sometimes pain, pressure, tingling, shocks, ect, sometimes all at once, sometimes not, very strange.There have been many times when I felt it would have to be retreated or even pulled, but then it would improve.Its not over yet,got my fingers crossed, tooth feels pretty good most of time, not a big issue like it was, hope this helps.

vw1,

I am curious: Was the nerve vital when it was pulled, or did you have an abscess visible on the x-ray? If there was an abscess, I can understand why a root canal would take time to settle down.
I have been having trouble with a root canaled tooth where the nerve was still vital and no inflammation/infection in the jaw at the time of the rct.

I still have the tooth, don't know if it was absessed,it just hurt like *%$!.An endodontist that oversees another website forum admitted that treating a tooth with rct is as much an art as it is a science, meaning that they don't have all the answers when things don't turn out good.All I know is that my tooth has settled to the point where it no longer controls my life and very slowly improving, but it may fail big time tomorrow!
