Hi, I had a root canal done 3 weeks ago (My tooth was cracked and I had a toothache from it).
Well my toothache is still here, and it has gotton worse since the root canal.
I begged the dentist to re-do the root canal but he said that he couldn't, that he did all that he could to the tooth.
So he sent me to a endodontists.
Well the endodontists said that either I have a fractured root or that the filling is way too deep and touching the root, or the dentist missed a root.
So the dentist, screwed up!!
I have had alot of root canals done before, and everytime, my toothache pain went away, RIGHT AWAY!
The endodontist can't work on my tooth for another couple of weeks,
and plus he said that even with him re-doing the root canal, etc..
it's no guarantee that my toothache pain will go away.
So I just decided to have the tooth Extracted!
So this coming Wednesday, the 9th I will have it pulled out!
I know that my mouth will hurt for a few weeks from the extraction,
but I guess it's better than a toothache!
I really wanted to save the tooth (because I don't have that many left)
but my dentist is ordering me a partial, because I don't have any of my back teeth left.
Well just keep going to the dentist and tell them that your still in pain, and if they don't know what to do, then go see ANOTHER endodontists.
I can't believe that the endodontists didn't suggest that your root canal could have failed.
I have read somewhere on the internet that toothaches can come after many days, months, or even years from having a root canal done.
