Because the tooth has a root canal if should have no sensation to the existence of a cavity unless the tooth becomes re-infected.  With tooth infection present there can be referred pain to other teeth.  However, you should have your dentist check all the teeth that are having discomfort to ensure there are not other or multiple issues.
