  • When you consider all they do to the tooth having a root canal treatment, that is a lot of trauma. and also having an infection which has caused a lot of pressure in such a small place. I have seen pt.s have pain for up to a month after wards. I wouldn't worry right now, the pain is normal. Oh yes i forgot if the Dr. filled the root canals with steel points, that can cause some discomfort also. If the pain doesn't gradually get better. or becomes worse then call your dentist. If you were not given pain meds then use Ibuprofen for your pain and use a cold pack to reduce any swelling that might cause pain also. Just give it some time.
