  • You have undergone root canal treatment in which the nerves are deadened . Immediately after the anaesthesia wore off some times there is pain and swelling as the tooth takes some time to settle down . This subsides in a dayo r two maximum in a week. If it does not subsides by then , then you have to visit your dentist and find out the cause.
