    Root Canal

    I got a root canal 4 years ago & when the procedure was finished my dentist put a crown in. I don't visit the dentist regularly however last week (after 2 years) I decided to visit the dentist just to see if everything is okay. My dentist checked all my teeth (including the teeth I had a root canal done) and he said that everything was ok. He gave me a quick dental clean & I was done. However couple of nights ago I had steak for dinner, flossed, brushed & mouth washed my teeth & I went to bed. About 4 AM I woke up and my root canal tooth was in pain. I went to the toilet to wash my mouth and my root canal tooth felt funny. I went back to sleep woke up in the morning & the pain went. Now every time I chew/apply pressure the root canal tooth really hurts. I was hoping if anyone knew the reason why I am feeling this sudden pain on my 4 year old root canal?
