I have a bottom molar that gives me pain. I can take advil etc and get some relief temporarily. I don't know if I need a root canal or not. I had one done 4 years ago and my Dentist cannot see anything wrong. It hurts in the back of my neck and in my face area. I am really perplexed as to what I should do.

  • If the tooth is already root canal treated and there is no problem that your dentist cannot see and then may be it is some adjacent tooth which is infected or decyed causing the problem. Without clinical exam and check up and xrays, it is not possible to comment but go to dentist and discuss with him the problems. The treatment can be done only after making a diagnosis. for more info on root canal treatment you can check this article in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-root-canal-therapy-17.aspx
