Pain and cold/hot sensitivity after root canal

Hello

I had a root canal done one year ago and have had pain ever sińce
The dentist redid it 3 months after the original treatment with no success
I went back after 3 more months. She tapped the tooth and when I told her it still aches- she said I will have to live with it and that she wont do anything and refused an X ray (I suspect the root is broken)

The dentist also said that the neighbouring root treated tooth has infection and that it can’t be redone as there is a post and hardly any tooth left

I’m so worried as I already lost half of my teeth (have numerous implants)

I would appreciate any advice

Kind regards

Lala

It is difficult to give an exact opinion without more information, such as x-rays etc., but it sounds like you might have a combination problem. If the root canal that the dentist attempted is not successful, he/she should refer you to an endodontist specialist for an opinion. The specialist will be able to also give you an opinion regarding the adjacent tooth, which might require an extraction at this stage.
