Root Canal query - advice required

Hi, I am new to the forum and I was wondering if you can help me with a root canal query on my UR7 (molar).


My NHS dentist concluded that the tooth have decay and would need root canal.

I then went to a private dentist to get it diagnosed and gather a second opinion. They also concluded that it needed a root canal. They completed the initial root canal treatment fine, however when I came back for the root canal filling 2 weeks ;ater, they had to abandon the session after 20 mins or so as they said it was bleeding and they were not sure why. So they said I come back in a week to try again?

Can anyone give me an idea on why this may be the case? I am thinking whether I should go to endodontist instead, but I have already paid for the root canal treatment (which was successful until the filling had to go in?)

Good day

Could be residual pupal tissue that is still present in the canals or could be infection that still needs to clear up. Worst case scenario is that the tooth became perforated.
I would go for the follow-up, so that the tooth can be re-assessed.

Thank you. They did take an x-ray and found no issue last week but I will go back for the reassessment. Do you think I would be better off going to endontist from here or just go see the dentist again?

It depends. A lot of dentists are experienced in molar root canal therapies, but if you are unsure, you can always go to an endodontist, but the costs might be more.

I went back today for the follow up/filling and they notice atill bleeding on one of the canals. They have referred me to a specialist.

Any more clues from the x-ray?
