Hello, pain could be because of infection to roots. you can do salt water rinses but this will give you temporary relief.Root canal is the most common procedure carried in day to day practice and it is done under anaesthesia so it should not pain.

There are many misconceptions surrounding root canal (endodontic) treatment and whether patients experience root canal pain. Myth #1—Root canal treatment is painful. Myth #2—Root canal treatment causes illness. Myth #3—A good alternative to root canal treatment is extraction (pulling the tooth). with modern technologies and anesthetics, root canal treatment today is no more uncomfortable than having a filling placed.

Hello Sir, Greetings for the day. What is Root Canal Treatment and Why Would You Want It? Root canal treatment is used to save teeth which would otherwise need to be removed. It is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. Root canal treatment is done under Local Anaesthesia with Modern equipments (Apexlocator, Rotary Endodontic machiene, etc) which makes the treatment absolutely painless.
Next Steps
Do not delay the treatment as there are chances of more dis-comfort and Swelling.
Health Tips
Do not consume anything hot/cold and Sour/Sweet. Do not bite from the side where the root canal is required.
