    I recently had my #19 molar re treated . First rc showed slight shadow near base of jaw bone.
    Now I’m having a funny feeling when I eat. It’s like a pressure up and down almost cracking type feeling. Doesn’t hurt but just strange. I’m going back to Endodonist next week to evaluate. Has anyone experience this. I also had new dentist fill a tooth next to this one and dentist said it was a deep filling. Put pulp cap in it. Help

    The endo will be in best position to assess how ell it's going. Pulp capping on an exposed nerve horn has poor long term results - better either to stop a bit short and seal in decay, or prepare for full RCT.
