Hi Beny
There is a risk of infection seeping into the cavity and as your rootcanal treatment is still causing you problems, please
arrange an appointment with your local dentist to take a further x-rays and assess your rootcanal treatment.

As you have not mentioned as to how long its been since your rootcanal treatment was done, it is difficult to advice with
regard to its prognosis.

It is common to restore a successfully rootfilled tooth with a CROWN to protect the tooth from fracturing.
