I had a root canal in January, 2003 because I was having sensitivity to cold/hot and presure in one of my teeth on the right side. The endodontist could not see anything on x-rays, but performed the root canal anyway.
I continued to have pain so he went in and removed more tissue. I still have pain (mostly hot/cold sensitivity) and he suggests I will have to see a surgeon because the problem may not be visible on x-ray - he says the root may curve beyond where he removed tissue.
For the past couple of weeks I having been experiencing pain (like that of a sore muscle) above my right eye. Is it possible that there is some kind of infection in my tooth that could also be affecting my eye? ...Visitor from GA
I would suggest that you get back with the endodontist. You may want to call this weekend if you are having discomfort.
