Good day

I would advise to go back to your dentist. Root canal treatments does sometimes take a while ( month or so ) to settle. It could be however that the filling the dentist placed after completing the treatment is a bit high, causing strain on the ligaments around the tooth and then leading to pain. If that is the case, the occlusion just needs to be adjusted a bit. Best place to start is to back to your dentist. In the mean time you can take any anti-inflammatory meds.

If you suspect your root canal treatment might not have worked, see a dentist to diagnose the problem. Signs of failure include pain, swelling, pimples, bad taste, or discoloration. Treatment options include root canal retreatment or extraction. If retreatment isn't feasible, extraction might be necessary. Discuss the pros and cons with your dentist. FloMo Dental can provide an examination, review your X-rays, and refer you to qualified specialists within our network based on your needs. Remember, early intervention is key!
