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.... Regards....

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.

Hi 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.
