... Hi Border3899, I am going through a similar situation. I had a tooth root canaled about a year ago and it started to hurt a few months ago so I had a retreatment. And now it hurts again! I am hoping that I can see a new endodontist, because I don't think going to the same guy would be a good idea. I have a feeling that he is to blame. My question for you is, do they need to...

... n I had to have a back molar extracted due to decay of an untreated root that they missed on a root canal years ago.Dentist desperately wanted to save it with an apiectomy but since it was the furtherest one back, I said no. ... (1 replies)
... Hi Corricatt, Thanks for the response. It was actually my regular dentist (who did have something to gain) who said I needed a new crown. The endo took off my crown to do the retreat but he was able to keep it in one piece. He said that it was still good, but when I went to get a new post and the crown recemented at my regular dentist he said that it didn't fit correctly. So I... (25 replies)

... I have a question. I had a root canal about a year ago on tooth number 30 (lower right hand side molar). Everything was fine until I started having pain in the tooth again about three months ago, so I went to the endodontist. He said that everything looked good and he didn't understand why I had pain.

... I also have a root canal treated tooth that has not been right for over a year now. Apparenty the bit beyond the root is infected, and unless I have something called an apiectomy, which will cost a lot and may not be a success, the tooth will always cause me pain. I have spent a lot of money on this tooth, and so have therefore decided that enough is enough, and to have the... (3 replies)
... oblem. My root canal retreatment, however, came years after the first one. I was told that I needed another root canal but if that did not work I would need an apiectomy which runs between850 and 1000 dollars. Well, surprise, surprise, that is what I am now facing. It probably is actually cheaper in the long run than a bridge. ... (6 replies)

... maining infection. If the tooth is not root canaled or extracted the infection will just come back and could cause much worse problems and more money such as an Apiectomy or extraction. Always have a root canal if a tooth is infected or you're creating troble down the road. ... (9 replies)

... It turns out I am going back next month for an apiectomy instead, but you were right. They said they could still do it! Thanks! ... (1 replies)
... I really do not have any advice, but am going through the same thing, except that my root canal was done 12 years ago and I am facing my first apiectomy next month. It sounds like we have the exact same symptoms and everything. One thing my regular dentist recently tried was putting me on penicillin. ... (1 replies)
