See your dentist: You need to see the dentist who is treating you for your root canal therapy. Pain may be from an accessory canal, and further treatment may be necessary... Your physician cannot determine that. Call and feel better soon...

dentist: If the node/swelling is in the same side where the root canal was done my advice is to go back to your dentist and see what's going on. Sometimes there may be a persistent infection even with the root canal done.
