Jaw pain 8 months after root canal

Posted by wonderwoman2021 @wonderwoman2021, Sep 5, 2021

Im suffering with jaw pain for eight months when my bridge was taken out. Temporary bridge was out in and thats when pain started
Two root canals were perfirmed on my two stub teeth. Pain never stopped my dentist has abandoned me. He won’t put in bridge until pain goes away. Been to so many doctors and no one can help me.
Im putting teeth numbing liquid on everyday and taking ibuprofen daily

Hello @wonderwoman2021, Welcome to Connect. You will notice we changed the title of your discussion to better describe what the discussion is about and help members with experience find the discussion. I can't begin to imagine how difficult it is to deal with the jaw pain every day for 8 long months. I've had two root canals before but the pain was relatively short lived. Here's some information I found on the topic that explains some possibilities.
