- Got a RCT on #2 on 9/28
- some sealer extruded and caused discomfort for a couple of weeks. Discomfort subsided and permanent crown was placed
- about 2-3 weeks after this, I began noticing sensitivity when pressing on #2 which has progressed
- I got #31 extracted a month ago so #2 is not in occlusion.
- 4 days ago I got #2 retreated. Both the initial treatment and retreat were done by Endodontists.

Any idea what could be happening here? I feel a pressure that comes and goes and a sensitivity pain when I press the tooth. Very uncomfortable and distracting

Both my restorative dentist and Endodontist took a look at #2 last week and did not see anything glaring.

A bit too early after 2nd RCT to be sure. Wait longer, and if still troublesome, ask last endo for a CBCT. In worst case scenario, you could have it extracted because you have no opposing tooth.
