Root canal treatment as said is process where practically nerves are removed and henceforth tooth should be totally asymptomatic.
Rct done perfectly should be painless post operatively.
pain following rct is always not due to improper infection management.
It can also be due to negligence from the dentist point of view.
mere presence of mild pain post rct doesnt always warrant retreatment.
root canal treatment is the only way to save your tooth..in many cases person feels pain after root canal treatment for few days ...but that is temporary.. this treatment is very safe ..you can go for it..
Root canal is pretty much a painless procedure unless the tooth is infected. Post operative discomfort is always tolerable. Post treatment If found to have pain, need to be evaluated. Meet a endodontist for expert opinion and resolutions
u will have little pain after rct.if it continues after 24 hrs get it checked. rct needs to b done 1ly by skilled dentist. sometimes root fracture could b t cause of pain after rct for which there is no treatment. u need to go for extraction in such case
