Question Root Canal Pain and Trigeminal Neuralgia


I have a question about root canal pain and Trigeminal Neuralgia.

In the last three months Iíve had three teeth with root canal symptoms.

Theyíve all had cold/hot sensitivity that lingers, pain with biting/chewing, constant toothache pain and throbbing toothache after coming in contact with cold. All of these teeth have been treated with root canal treatments and have all felt better after treatment.

Now for the last 3 weeks I have another tooth, an upper right front molar, #3 that is showing the same symptoms. I saw my dentist who referred me to an endodontist and a neurologist. Iíve already had the consultation with the endodontist and he wants to wait and see what the neurologist says before deciding to do a root canal treatment or not.

I am able to differentiate two different types of pain. I have a constant pain on both sides of my jaw that has episodes where it gets worse and will go into the ears. Other times itís just that constant jaw pain.

The other pain I can tell is separate and is coming from a specific tooth. The pain in the tooth responds to certain stimuli as mentioned above.

My appointment with the neurologist is coming up on April 27, 2018. Heís going to see me for these toothache related problems and chronic jaw pain. My dentist referred me for possible Trigeminal Neuraglia.

Have you ever heard of Trigeminal Neuraglia causing root canal type symptoms?

What advice can you give me regarding this? Are there any specific symptoms that would tell me if this was Trigeminal Neuraglia or not?

Thank you.

Re: Root Canal Pain and Trigeminal Neuralgia

My sister had TN...her pain could be caused by external stimuli...air conditioning vent blowing on her face-not cold against a tooth. Now it certainly could be for you but she did not experience that- and her husband is an endo.
