Mild pain after the root canal treatment for a few days is acceptable, but a prolonged duration indicates that either the root canal procedure was not properly done or is showing signs of infection..... please visit a dentist for a proper clinical examination and an x ray of the tooth to evaluate the case better....
please provide more details as to when was rct done. if it was done recently then it is normal and you need to take medications. other causes may include improper cleaning, residual infection, reinfection and many more. can be diagnosed only after a clinical examination
Sometimes you do get pain post RCT, reason can be residual infection or an inflammatory reaction due to instrumentation. You can go back to your dentist and may be get the tooth relieved from occlusion.
It's not unusual to have pain for a day or two after root canal treatment .But if it's more than that then u need to get X-ray of the tooth done to evaluate any reinfection .Doctor would have given u a course of antibiotics.. hope u have finished that .Kindly get your self checked at the latest to find the root cause of problem.
Hi . Got to check if root canal done properly or not . Also rule out any sinus cold allergy . As a specialist for a root canal I would suggest pl get it verified with an Endodontist. Also check when does it pain -on chewing??Tc
