I have had a root canal on upper 2nd molar right side 4 days ago. Over the past 24 hours I have had a headache that just will not quit. It is not severe. Could this have anything to do with the root canal I received.

  • Yes it can be due to root canal treatment but in that case the tooth which is root canal treated will also be tender. It can be due to some sinus problem. So if you feel the pain and it is not decreasing then schedule an appointment with dentist. After root canal treatment the tooth takes around upto 7 days to settle down. So you can wait and if it does not go within a week then schedule an appointment with dentist. Till then donot irritate that tooth and donot eat from that side. For more info on complications after root canal treatment you can read this article in our website..... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-root-canal-therapy-17.aspx
