I had a root canal done three days ago and it still hurts. Is this normal or was the root canal unsuccessful/not done properly? Infected?
It usually takes about a week for the canal to heal. Remember they go in and pretty much rip out your roots. Healing does take a while. Mine lasted for about 8 days.
Could be a infection call the doctor and ask... They might put you on a anti infection med
Could have an dry socket. Hurts bad, go back to dentist.
First consult your dentist, I had a root canal and it did not pain but the gum around the tooth was sore and sensitive. If it is hurting that means there is still some nerve that are still working. Go back to your dentist.
