what are symptoms of a fractured root

what are symptoms of a fractured root? I had a root canal about 4 months ago. I still have a sensitive tooth to pressure only on one side of my tooth. (#9) What could be causing this sensitivity? Hot and or cold do not bother the tooth, only pressure (pushing on the tooth with my finger or biting on the edge of my tooth)

Re: what are symptoms of a fractured root

I had a rout canal on my front tooth just before Xmas. It felt tender like yours for months, I went back to my dentist about 3 times and he gave me antibiotics as he thought I might have an infection. These did not help. Eventually he redid the rout canal even though he could not see anything wrong with it. That was about 3 weeks ago and at first the tooth still felt tender but it has settled down a lot now. A dentist in a different practice told me that for some people rout canals can take a while to settle down.
