    Tooth and jaw pain

    I had a filling done three months ago and ever since then I’ve had discomfort in the gum and jaw area. It was recommended I get a root canal which I did but the discomfort is still there. I’ve had xrays taken and have been to an oral surgeon as well as the endodontist but so far no luck determining what the cause is. I have also been on antibiotics. When I had the filling the dentist used a single tooth anesthetic “the wand” which I never had before. Is it possible that a nerve was damaged from this form of anesthetic? Thank you.
