It means that might have a small hole in your tooth with the filling ( which might not be visible.) you will have to go to the dentist again to see if the cavity has continued to grow in your gum or tooth.

Why do you still have the effect of the novocaine from being at the dentist twenty four hours later hours later?

It is possible that the type of local anesthetic the dentist used was particularly potent on you, although 24 hours is unusual. It is also possible the procedure the dentist performed may have bruised a nerve and that is why you are still numb. This is called a transient or temporary parasthesia. In severe cases, parasthesia can persist for months. Regardless of the cause, it is important that you let your dentist know you are experiencing this lingering numbness.

Why does a molar tooth still hurt two months after a root canal and could the nerve still be in the tooth?

Weird, I had this same problem recently. I had a root canal down and a few months later my tooth started hurting again. I was now going to a different dentist and he took out the filling and the previous dentist didn't fill my tooth right and my nerves were swollen so they had to cut the nerves and do a new root canal with a new filling. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon. It is unusual that a tooth would hurt two months after a root canal, although it is not impossible. It might be that the restaurantion done on the tooth is too high, not letting the tooth heal correctly. There are always chances that there was an extra canal that wasn't seen by the operator. You can talk to your dentist about that possibility. He might suggest to wait 6 months.

Who would be a member of the American Dental Association is it a retired dentist a dentist student or a dentist patient?

A retired dentist. Just because they retire doesn't mean they lose their accreditation. Those are professional boards that certify you meet their requirements. You've met the requirement. A dental student is still a student and therefore doesn't qualify for accreditation as they're not licensed dentists. Lastly, why would the patient have an accreditation unless they're a dentist themselves?
