Can having a root canal cause facial pain?

Yes. If you are continuing to have pain after having a root canal, go back to the dentist or endodontist that provided the treatment and have them check to diagnose the reason for your continued pain. You may still have infection present or have another issue developing.
Not uncommon. But continued pain after root canal treatment may be a sign of complications. If you have severe pain or pressure that lasts more than two weeks, contact your endodontist or treating dentist for post-op evaluation.
Cleansing. The center of he tooth s hollow, filled with soft sterile tissue in health. Infected, and diseased tissue must be removed. Root canal treatment cleans out the space, resterilizes the hollow and seals it from inside. To protect he tooth, it must be properly restored adhesively.
Yes. Pain from any dental problem can result in referred pain to the facial area. Of course there could be other reasons too and therefore should be checked out by your dentist.
Perhaps. Perhaps but only if the root canal is not solving the problem. See the doc who did the root canal. If necessary, get a second opinion.
Yes. Sometimes a root canal can cause facial pain. Sometimes this is due to infection, residual bacteria, or failing root canal. It's important to go back to doctor for it to be evaluated and diagnosed.
Not ususally. But, it can happen and when it does you should be on antibiotics and antiinflammatories and possibly pain medication.
Not normal. The cause of the pain needs to be determined. It could be from a tooth, a muscle, a nerve condition or something else. I would suggest going back to your dentist that did the root canal and if no problem is found with the tooth, seeing a facial pain specialist.
Possible. Sometimes you can get referred pain to the face. If this persist, see your dentist for an evaluation.
