Not uncommon: Pulpectomy is just the first stage of treatment. Completion of Root Canal Therapy will resolve the problem. Speak to you own dentist to see when he\she wants to see you next and if anything can be done for relief of pain meanwhile.

Pulpotomy: A Pulpotomy is the first step in treating your tooth and the root canal needs to be completed. Some sensitivity is common, but if this is increasing , you have swelling , or the temporary filling comes out, then call your dentist ASAP.
