I had a root canal 6 days ago and my tooth is very sensentive to cold. I called the dentist's office who completed the procedure and the assistant said that it can't be from that tooth since there is no root in the tooth and that it must be the tooth in front of that one. The teeth involved is #15 and 14. (14) is the one she thinks could be the problem. I don't know but I have had 2 previous root canals and never had the kind of pain that brings tears to your eyes when you drink something cold.
This tooth was hard to work on as it wings out and touches the cheek. I would rather pull it but they belive that it is not a good idea since it is in the sinus cavity. Who knew that would be a problem??? I just know that I am out a lot of $$$$$$$$$ and do not want to continue with a crown if the tooth is going to require a re-treat.
Does anyone else have these same dental problems??? I have been to the dentist more in the last two years then I have been in my entire life!!!!!!!!!!! And I brush and floss my teeth as required..
