Unsuccessful Root Treatment

Hi Doc,

I had root canal treatment, however still felt sensation in that tooth. Subsequent to that my dentist removed everything incase there was inflammation / infection. I have been going every two weeks to clean all the canals. I am still feeling discomfort. Is it advisable to get another opinion or go to a specialist.

Thanking you

Root canals are not always successful. If the pain persits you could seek a second opinion.
