Gum Pain After Root Canal
It's ok: When doing a root canal, your dentist places a clamp around your teeth, and sometimes this creates some gum pain for a few days after treatment. They also use some irrigation solutions that can cause the tissue to turn white. It is a temporary condition, and should soon resolve. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call your dentist, and they can coach you more.See 2 more doctor answers
Not routine. ..: But few questions I have can get the answer u want. .. 1) is the root canal done by endodontist/specialist? Because they, might have used "rubber dam " where sometimes the clamping is slipped on to the gum line causing pain aferwards. And its transient. 2) did u have any fistula/abscess/history of periodontal problem prior to the root canal. Since that can also contribute to the issue.See 1 more doctor answer

Be patient 7-10 days: During the root canal therapy a lot of collateral tissue (gums, nerves, muscles) damage is done. The swelling is a symptom of the affected tissue inflammation.
