I had a root canal done 6 weeks ago. The tooth still seems to be sensitive. I can chew on it and drink things without any pain but if I rub my tounge across it I feel a weird sensitive feeling.. Kinda like if I was biting down on foil. Its like an electricity feeling going through it. Does this sound normal or should it be checked out?
I had the same problem after a particularly difficult root canal. I know the exact feeling you mean. I went back to my endodontist who told me that sensitivity can sometimes continue for a long time afterwards, but it will eventually settle. The longest she had ever heard was 18 months but had never heard of a case where it continued indefinitely. Mine took about three months but its fine now. I wouldn’t worry about it.
That does seem longer than normal. Call your dentist.
I’ve had 2 root canals and I don’t recall having a problem like that after that long . If I were you I would definately have it looked at
Not really… I would call the Dentist again.
Yeah I’d definitely call the dentist and see what’s up. I didn’t experience any pain at all after my root canal. Doesn’t hurt to ask.
