Tooth extracted, in pain. Is it related to valve replacement surgery? See an ENT?

2 root canals in a month-first tooth extracted because pain never went away. Tooth was woked on several times. Filling created too much pressure. 2nd tooth following same pattern.Just filled and pressure is intense. On antibiotics-new valves-and pain killers. Should I see an ENT? Had a neuro work-up and head CT. Everything normal. I am at a loss to deal with the pain. Is extraction the only answer? X-rays show nothing amiss and I have been taking antibioticas and was on a Medrol Pack. My valve replacement surgery was 5 months ago, but I don t know if this is relevant. YYYY@YYYY

Welcome to health care magic forum.
I read your problem,i would like to tell you that in some cases because of persisting infection there is pain after closed dressing.For this closed dressing can be removed and open dressing can be given and tooth would be left for few days.As the infection subsides treatment can be continued.
So nothing to get worried,i will suggest you go to an endodontist in your area bacuase endodontist deals with root canal treatment.
Take Care.

according to the history it seems that you are suffering from 'hot tooth '...these are some exceptional cases in rct procedures where patients suffer from pain,when a closed dressing is given after extirpation of pulp.But this has no relation with valve replacement,so don't worry.these situations can be negotiated with placing depulping agent in pulp chamber and keeping the tooth in open dressing for a couple of will be better to consult an endodontist for this purpose.wish you good health .thank you.
