Although very rarely pain can continue for up to 7 to 10 days after the root canal treatment, but that delays the Crown placement as well.... if the Crown was placed when no pain was there, the pain should not reoccur..... the best answer for this doubt will be by looking at the X-ray of the RCT treated tooth..... please post the same if you have one..... Regards.....

Pain should not be there after root canal treatment.. We need an xray of rct treated teeth for exact diagnosis and treatment plan... You can send an xray if you have...

The pain might not be because of the root canal treatment rather because of crown.there might be a high point in the cap which needs adjustment.it can only be done when u visit your dentist

Hello ,          Pain for a day or two after Rct is considered ok.But pain even after a week is not a good sign .Generally pain which u had earlier should wear off.As told by other doctors ,an xray will best determine the cause of pain.Pls visit your dentist and share your concerns with him.Simple xray will give you your answer.All the best.
