I had a sensitive lower left molar. I had a root canal on the tooth and crowned. Before the procedure I was experiencing very mild pain in the jaw below this tooth. After the procedure the pain has increased.
Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it doesn't. It's not unbearable, but it's become a part of my life, dragging me down. The pain is right at the bottom of my jaw and is sore to the touch, as if it were muscles and or nerves. ...Visitor from AL
It sounds like there might still be a problem with infection in that area. I would suggest that you get back with your dentist to see if they can help you figure out what the source is.
If is not infection then you may have a problem with the tooth being cracked. I hope that is not the case. Sometimes we can help in situations like this with some heavy duty antibiotics and some anti-inflammatory medication.
