Root Canal: Rule of thumb, I generally tell the patient the first 24 hrs are the roughest. Did the dentist prescribe antibiotics? pain killer? Headache may be coincidental, especially if you are prone to them. Best bet is contact your dentist .

Not normal: After the root canal treatment, you may have some headache, swelling and certainly some pain. If swelling does not decrease after 1 week call your dentist immediately for post root canal evaluation and treatment if needed.
