  • After getting root canals there can be pain and sometimes swelling also. About bridge work, temporary must have been given and there is possibility that pain and swelling is there due to high bridge but if it is not high then this is normal. Take some pain killer and maintain good oral hygiene. It usually subsides after 3-4 days after getting procedure. But if it keeps on increasing then you have to taken dental advice. Till then donot eat from that side and try to take soft diet. for more info on problems after RCT you can check this article in our website....http://www.identalhub.com/article_complications-and-care-after-root-canal-therapy-106.aspx
