HI, i had a root canal done a year ago on a tooth that was very infected. the whole proceedure was terrible, painfull and done at midnight because i was in so much pain. a year later and i still have pain. most of the time its only when presure is applied to the front side, lately( about 4-5 days now)it has been a constant dull pain. the thought of opening it again makes me sick
since i am also very phobic of the dentist. my dentist thinks the tooth is cracked because the xray shows a perfect root canal. the endodontist wants to try and do it again(my dentist did the first one). does anyone have experience with failed root canal versus cracked root? are the pain symptoms different? i would hate to go through another root canal and end up having to have the tooth pulled. i am also so afraid that the pain i had befor the root canal is going to come back. its been a year so does that mean that chances are it won't get that bad again or not? i need help!!
