Question:
I had a root canal, left side, second from back approximately 4 months ago.

When I came back for the permanent crown, the tooth was still sensitive. The dentist said: What's the problem, there are no nerves?

4 months later it now aches slightly. It still is slightly sensitive when you press on the side of the crown. So bothersome ... what to do now?

It's obvious my dentist thinks the tooth is fixed but it's not. Just recently it started aching again. I thought I had a TMD issue.

My wife says I grind my teeth at night and my left side jaw clicks when I push on it slightly. ...Visitor from MI

Answer:
It sounds like the root canal is an "incomplete" root canal, in that there may be hidden canals that were not treated. This can be a common event for many patients.

The symptoms of jaw clicking suggests a dysfunction of the tmj joints, which can lead to generalized jaw pain and also different degrees of headaches, neck and shoulder pain.

Consult with some experts inTMJ and Neuromuscular Dentistry. 15+ years of experience would be a good place to start.
