When : When ever you have extended discomfort following treatment you should contact the doctor who is treating you and discuss your symptoms with them. In an ideal situation when root canal therapy is complete the post operative response is uneventful. However there are a number of conditions that do cause pain afterwards and the causes need to be eliminated. First of all, when you close your teeth together are you aware of the root treated tooth striking or touching before the other teeth and does hurt to close your teeth together. If it is uncomfortable on touching the tooth or temporary may be high in the bite and need adjusting. The process of treating a canal may cause material to pass through the end of the tooth and that can cause an inflammatory reaction. Please call you doctor now.

The tissue around the tooth .X ray and periodontal checkup will determine the outcome of the situation .

I had a root canal treatment done on a tooth one year ago. It has never settled. Recent x-rays show nothing. I have constant dull ache all the time. What should I do?

The remaining nerve still reacts as if there is nerve in the tooth, can even continue after extraction. There are pain specialists. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Seek Treatment: From your symptoms, the root canal may be failing. I would recommend a referral to a dentist or to an walk-in-clinic. I would ice the area 20 minutes every 2 hours and start taking ibuprofen, if available, until you are seen. Antibiotics may be needed to help improve your symptoms and relieve the pressure. I hope you are able to seek treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Tooth feels exactly same 5 days after root canal. no temp sensitivity, but constant ache. dr said no infection was present. what should next step be?
Crown, but...: Assuming the aching you are experiencing is coming exclusively from the tooth you had the root canal on the aching should have at least improved by now. It really depends on how bad the initial infection was and as long as things are feeling better as time goes by then your next step would be placing a crown on the tooth. ...Read more
