Sorry, that is tooth resorption, an uncommon condition. It is when your immune system thinks your teeth are foreign invaders and starts to attack them. Evidently it is not easy for most endodontists to identify. Mine had a CAT scan machine in her office. Please get this checked out soon, it can attack nearby teeth.

It sounds like it is fractured. You need to be on antibiotics to see if the tooth calms down, if not and hurts when you eat or touch it, then it can be fractured. A dentist can check with a explorer if the tooth is loose, xrays do not always show a fracture. If it is too much to bare and you are having headaches, ear ache, whole side of face hurts bad, then you get a second opinion or you have it extracted. Do not get a crown over that tooth if you have this kind of pain. A crown will not get rid of this problem and it will cost you the money you put into it. Have an actual endodontics look at it. Good luck!

I had a tooth filled at a dental school. The dentist forgot to turn the drill off as he took it out of my mouth and drilled through my bottom lip. He was having an exam and had to have the instructors grade every step, so he laid a gauze over my lip and proceeded. I had to go up to the oral surgeon to have my lip sewn up. Needless to say, I have not been back to the dental school.

I guess I'm joining the club of painful teeth with root canals. I had a root canal done on my upper molar probably 8 years ago or so. Everything was fine until 3 week ago when I started to experience a lot of pressure on that tooth. I have had invisalign for over 2 years now and before that I had jaw expenders for 1.5 years (I'm 33 now). So, my first thought was maybe it is the invisalign that is causing the pressure (although it was unusual because in the past I felt only a bit of pressure for couple of hours after putting a new invisalign trays).
Couple of days later the pressure was still there, so I decided to go to a dentist. He took x-rays and told me that I had cavities in a tooth in front of and a tooth behind of the root canal tooth. He told me that the feeling of pressure was probably coming from one of these 2 teeth, since my root canal looked normal on the x-ray.
Couple of day later I got both cavities done. Dentist told me that my teeth might be a little sensitive for couple of days, but after that pain should be gone. Unfortunately, that was not the case. My molar still hurt and on top of this, one of the cavities he fixed was between the teeth and it seemed like he did not leave enough space between these teeth, so I couldn’t floss and constantly felt like something was stuck in there. I went back, he made some space (still not great, but at least I can floss now). I asked him about the pressure and sensitivity to cold. Dentist told me (again) that the sensitivity was coming probably from the tooth that had a cavity and that it should go away in about 3 weeks. Was he wrong.
It's been almost a month and I find myself still in pain. Or maybe not pain, but a lot of discomfort and feeling of pressure. I also know now that since the beginning I was right. That pressure is coming from my root canal molar, because now I cannot even drink cold beverages. My teeth are pretty sensitive to cold in general (especially ice cream, not so much cold drinks), but this molar takes it to another level. I can't even rinse my mouth after brushing teeth. I have to first warm up water using the right side of my mouth and then rinse on the left. I did the test with warm drink and it is not bad. I feel a bit of pressure only a tiny bit after I actually swallow the drink and not when I keep it hot in my mouth. I hope that it is a good sign.
I read all of post here and I'm kind terrified. I have no dental insurance and it seems like it can be one of 4 things:
1. I have a 4th canal that was overseen;
2. I have some sort of infection that did not show on the x-ray (my gum has been a bit sore for last 4 days, but maybe I cut myself
trying to get the floss though that tight spot between the teeth);
3. I need to get that procedure done with snipping off roots in my gum;
4. Tooth is fractured and it did not show on the x-rays.
Did I miss any other common diagnosis?
I planning to make appointments with 2 different endo to get their opinions before I start spending real $$ and let them dig in my tooth.

Did the dentist that did the root canel and then did the gum procedure charge you for the gam procedure. I just paid $1500 to have the root canel and now he wants to charge $1000 to do the next procedure - seems to me that there should not be a charge?

Day 4, still pressure sensitive. Yesterday I accidentally chewed on that side. Ouch. Hurt like heck. Understatement. Note to self: don't do that again. Decided to try a day without pain meds to see where it's at. Trying not to aggravate it but still throbbing slightly. About the same as when I started. In other news, my bad knee felt great for the last few days while on pain meds. Now that I am off those it feels much worse than before. Oi, that's just what I needed to take my mind off my tooth.
Won't update unless there is something new to report.

Day 3 and still very pressure sensitive. Still taking over the counter anti-inflammatories and tylenol as well as the clyndamycin. Not much has changed. Upper jaw still has swelling. I don't think this bodes well for the outcome.

So here it is 24 hrs after the procedure and there is still a lot of sensitivity when I press on the tooth, as well as swelling in my cheek bone. I've been taking over the counter analgesics to take away the throbbing, alternating tylenol and advil. It's not unbearable but I don't recall feeling this way after any previous root canal. I am not convinced it was done right. I called my dentist today and she wanted to prescribe a steroid for the inflammation, I refused. Don't want any more meds if possible, especially steroids as I already take inhaler steroids for asthma. Still taking the anti-biotics as well, not sure if they are doing anything at all since the pain level has not changed, and she didn't see visible infection. She told me what I am feeling today is because of the surrounding soft tissue and this frequently happens from a root canal. I'm not so sure because I have had numerous root canals and this has never happened to me before. I think there are other nerves involved. We'll see if it calms down over the next few days but, it's a long weekend, of course, so I hope I don't have to go to an emergency dentist for treatment if it gets significantly worse. She refused to prescribe percacets that I asked for as a back up because I wouldn't take the steroid she was suggesting. And up here in Canada the whole opiod med thing has got everyone scared and now they are reluctant to prescribe them. I've only ever had them once in my life (for the abcessed tooth that was pulled a few years back), so I'm a high risk for dependency, umm yeah sure. No common sense there. I told her if the RC has failed then I will get it extracted. She said, "it didn't fail, I drilled right to the end and I sealed it". And I'm thinking, how can you be so sure, it's only been 24 hours? I've lost faith at this point.
Darn, it's time to take more tylenol.
