I am unable to chew food on my leftside. Both upper and lower from the eye teeth back get really "sore" for lack of a better word. I have had a couple root canals in those areas and thery were sore for probably a year. My dentist had no explaination nor remedy. Any thoughts? Thank You, William Crocker

  • You shold get the X-ay done on the left side to find out the cause of the pain. Some times the root canal treatment of the tooth is failed and the tooth becomes infected again and some times if you had cowns the gums they get irritated and infected due to por oral hygeine and the food impaction. You have to get the clinical examination doe and find out the cause. if it is because of the infected tooth then reroot canal treatment is done.
