I have a serious question that i cant seem to find the answer to I have had a root canal one week ago and im still in pain in that tooth! After the procedure was over and the numbness subsided i still have a dull throbbing ache in that tooth and in surounding teeth as well! My dentist just gave me a imflammatory drug to take Im concerned because i bit down on that tooth a day after procedure and im afraid that i may have crsacked the filling and food had gotrten in that tooth and had infected it again! How can I know if that has happened or whats going on My dentisty doesent seem to care much he didnt even want to c me again and get a exrray of the tooth to c whats causing the pain so Im very confused! Shouldnt a exray be preformed to find the cause of the pain? Does a exray show if a filling is still in place or that the procedure was done properly and that no infection is in the tooth?
