Curious as to how much will it hurt when the dental anaesthetic wears off, after root canal treatment?
That depends: I have had patients who don't have ay pain after a root canal. And then I have had some with severe pain after a root canal. It depends on how much instrumentation is done beyond the apex of the tooth, how inflamed the nerve is when the treatment was performed (the longer one waits to get a root canal, the more likely it is to hurt after), and your pain tolerance. There are medications to help. ...Read more
The same. . .: Teeth treated endodontically should look the same, with the exception of an access hole that is drilled on the biting surface of back teeth or the back sides of front teeth.

How long after root canal treatment before permanent seal is put in, and is it normal if it is still hurting?
Permanent Seal?: By permanent seal, do you mean permanent build up? Permanent crown? Or permanent rc filling.
