  • a few days, you can try cloves to help, its a natural pain reliever, you can add it to tea or suck on a clove.
    ice on the neck will help too.
    good luck

  • When I had my root canal done my mouth was sore for about a week. I could not eat hard foods just soft food and warm liquids.

  • I feel for you. I had four done at one time. I was only sore for a couple of days.
