Teeth Cleaning and now a Root Canal!

Hi, I hope you are well! I had a teeth clean last week where the hygienist was rough and ripped a glove. After the cleaning, I experience extreme pain. At first, I thought it was just aggravated TMJ. I now need a root canal on a tooth that doesn’t have a cavity. Could the cleaning have caused this issue? Do I have alternatives to the root canal? Should I go to another dentist? Thank you for your time and insights!

Good day

How do you know the tooth does not have a cavity?
Did they take any x-rays that you could share?
A lot of times a cavity can be in between teeth, which is not visible to the eye. This is why x-rays are taken.
