Tooth pain post root canal
Depas posted:
I had a root canl one month ago and have just started to have pain over the past three days in the area of the temporary filling. I still need to return to my dentist to finish my cap. The pain is horrific and it is radiating from my upper to my lower gums. I have been taking more than my share of motrin and tylenol. What are the chances that this is the same tooth or could it be a different tooth entirely?? The pain is also keeping me awake at night. Thanks

Hi Depas and welcome!

I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing pain from that root canal. I'm sure our community or our experts will be chiming in soon, but in the meantime, here are a couple other discussions from our board from others having root canal troubles. Maybe they will be of help:
