Hi all, I had my first visit for a root canal on a pre molar tooth, just wondering if it's normal to still feel the bump above the tooth? I was expecting it to go once the tooth was drained.
Thanks all

Good day

Sometimes it can take a while for the bump to disappear. If it still present after a month, go back to see the dentist for a follow-up.

If it's a soft bump, then it usually disappears quickly. A hard bump is usually the bone - this may or may not be associated with an abscess. If it is abscess-related, then it will slowly shrink over about 6-12 months following a successful RCT. It would only be of concern if it started to get larger.
