During my root canal treatment they told like I had nerve blockage in my teeth.they want me to wait for 10 days after that only they will decide to put cap for teeth or not.why the blockage happens?? Is it due to any disease like thyroid??

Hello..there might be pulp stone which causes blockage to approach the full length of canal.To dissolve pulp stone and to negotiate full length of canal dissolving solution is placed.wait for period of time,do not worry.It is nowhere related to thyroid as such.
It would be better if you could post your x-ray in the forum, for a more conclusive and supportive suggestions. The possibilities could be many from a narrow calcified canal ( close to your interpretation of nerve blockage) to some pulp stones.
There seems to be a misinterpretation of the treatment,.
There is nothing like nerve blockage...
Is the root canal treatment completed,
Or is it still underway,
There can be stones in the pulp chamber (the place where you remove infected nerves), which can make negotiating and going deeper in the canals to clean them, whereby we keep some stone softening agent inside to help us go deeper at a later date...
We sometimes wait to put a cap, if we need to see the response of root canaled treated tooth for any recurrence of pain or swelling, as it is still easier to go back to the tooth to treat then putting a cap and then face a situation like that... But that is rare...
Hope this has helped you get more clarity
