Slight/dull ache one month after root canal on molar

I had a root canal procedure 1 month ago. After my tooth was fine and swelling went away quickly. Now (3 weeks later) I have a very slight/dull ache, I wouldn't say it is sore per se, but it is rather irritating. Its like I can constantly feel that tooth is there yet it is not painful. It is only this tooth and no other that is annoying.

I know that I also have a problem grinding my teeth at night, however I wear a think mouthguard to protect them.

My question is, given the very slight nature of this discomfort, whether this could be due to grinding my teeth or an issue with my treated tooth?

I am reluctant to go back to the dentist as its so expensive!

Any reply would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

Hi I just saw your post and I'm in a similar situation almost 3 months after a root canal. Just wondering did your pain eventually fade away or did you have to circle back to your dentist/endo ?
