I had a root canal done while in AZ approx. 3 years ago. Another dentist put a crown on the tooth last Spring. I have had no problem until recently when the area around the tooth began hurting. I went to the dentist in Minnesota 2 different times and she took Xrays both times and said the tooth looked fine. I has started hurting worse and it hurts in my neck near the tooth area and the back of my head. I am taking a lot of pain pills, but don't feel that is the answer. I am thinking that I should go to an Oral Surgeon and have the tooth pulled. I need advice.
