Q.

Root Treatment

Good day Doc,

I had root treatment in February and I am still feeling sensitivity in that tooth. My dentist said that I should take antibiotics but I am not sure if that is going to help. Is it normal to still feel sensations once root treatment has been performed or could the root possibly be fractured.
I look forward to your feedback
Thanks

Pain 3 months after a root canal is not common. you need to exclude any active infection. if there is active infection- the root canal treatment was unsuccessful and will most likely need to be redone
