Not too often: One of the reasons for a root canal is an infected tooth. While the infection starts inside the tooth, abscesses are by definition 'outside' the tooth. The root canal treats the source, but sometimes the abscess can still progress in size resulting in visible swelling. If concerned, seek follow-up evaluation from your dentist. An antibiotic might help.See 2 more doctor answers
