Hi doctor,

I did a root canal before a couple of days. But I have pain in the exact upper tooth of the root canaled tooth. I have attached the X-ray after the first sitting of the root canal. Please suggest.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern regarding dental health. In this condition, it will take time to have healing of the ligament and tissue at the end of the root of the root canaled tooth as it was previously affected by the infection. So do not worry and take antibiotics and analgesics prescribed by your dentist. If the pain persists even after all these, then go for check up with a radiographic investigation of the same tooth.
