  • Normally after Root Canal Treatment pain can be there for 2-3 days but it should go away after that. For the time being, take the pain killers and avoid eating anything from that side. Wait for few days more, if you are having pain after a week and it is increasing in intensity especially if it is more when you lie down, that indicates that tooth may be still be having infection. For this you have to visit your endodontist, In case of infection,  Re-Root Canal Treatment can be done to save the tooth. You can get your tooth pulled out anytime but why remove it when it can be saved.
