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.
