  • There are two possibilities that why you are facing this problem. One can be that your Root Canal Treated tooth is infected and in this case along with difficulty in opening of mouth, you cannot chew food from that side. The other possibility is that you got root canal treatment is done in 2nd molar and your 3rd molar (wisdom tooth) is erupting which can be impacted and causing this problem. If the cause is former then along with antibiotics you have to go for Re-Root canal treatment if you want to save the tooth. If is is due to impacted wisdom tooth then that has to be pulled out. Now for this you have to schedule a visit to your dentist, who will do exam and take xrays to findout the exact reason for the same.
