Q.

Tooth Sensitivity

Hi Doc

I went to a dentist last year and he did a rootcanal on one of my teeth (molar), i was always able to eat on the tooth with no problem but since i underwent the rootcanal i have experienced pain on the tooth and can therefore not eat on the one side. I do not want to go back to this dentist as the work (filling) that he has done on my other teeth were of bad quality. what do i do? do you think that it is pinching a nerve or something.
Please respond as i am desperate for help!

the tooth may still have an infection in it. Root canal treatments are not always successful and often need to be redone to get rid of the pain.
see another dentist to ahve this done
