Tooth Pain After Root Canal
Reasons & Treatment Options
When a tooth is decayed, damaged, and is stricken with severe pain, extraction is not always the best option. Especially when dealing with permanent teeth, it may still be possible to salvage it with root canal treatment (endodontic therapy).
Of course, you would be expecting the tooth pain to be gone after the procedure. And although it is normal that some mild tooth pain and feeling of tenderness may be felt for the next few days after the procedure, sharp or severe pains are an indication of a problem.
