Hi doctor,

Three weeks ago, I had a root canal done. But, the pain is still present. I cannot bite anything as the pressure gives pain. Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Your dentist should take an x-ray again to check for infection and either repeat the procedure or give you medicine and reduce the height of the tooth.
  • If the root canal treatment fails, then he will advice to extract that tooth. Take care.
