RT - After Six Months, Still Bothering Me



Junior member
Apr 1, 2006
I can't believe after six months my root canaled right back molar is still bothering me from time to time.  I thought it had finally subsided but every now and then I still get a slight twinge from this tooth!!!  I have been quite ill for the last six weeks and have noticed the tooth off and on.  Could there possibly be infection in the tooth after all this time? I don't know what to do.  I don't want to go back to the same dentist because I have no confidence in her.  Should I see a specialist at this point? Please advise.
Difficult to say over the internet. If you don't trust the dentist that did the endo then you'll need to try and find another one for a second opinion. Must specialists won't see patients without referral.
