Sensitive upper palate

My upper palate has become more ridgey and pitted (like small ulcers although they do not hurt)  over the past one to two months.  I had a root canal done in November of 2007 on a previously crowned tooth (upper, behind canine tooth).  It is still a bit touchy when I press on it and more painful when I press on my gum above that tooth.  This newly root-canaled tooth is next to this area on my upper palate which is causing me concern.  Could the root canal be causing this to the hard palate?  I am an ex-smoker and always worried about repercussions.  My dentist and hygenist examined my mouth in January  and again late in February and said everything looked very normal.  Can you give me any advice?  Thank you greatly!

Seeing an endodontist for a second opinion is advised. If the endodontist does see something unusual and can not make a differential diagnosis, he/she probably will refer you to an oral pathologist or oral surgeon.
