This is the second time this has happened. I had a root canal and crown down around 5 years ago. 2 years ago it started hurting and I went to the dentist. He ended up tearing out the crown and putting a new one in. I guess the tooth is mostly gone because like the first time, he had to do tooth lenghtening procedures. I asked him what happened because in a root canal the tooth is supposed to be dead. He said he didn't know and couldn't tell, but since I reported it hurting he redid it. He does not have a good bedside manner at all so it is hard to talk to him.
Now this is happening again two years after the last time. The tooth is 3 teeth in on the bottom. So far it is not bad, and I am hoping it gets better but does anyone have a clue as to what is happening?
Just because this is the second time doesn't make it his fault, but I am wondering if I should go to a doctor that might be able to tell me what is happening.
Also, the first time it happened during or right after running a marathon, yesterday it happened after running too. I run alot so it might not mean anything but could the fact it happened after a marathon the first time mean anything?
