Sensitivity after root canal #DrSoftTouch
It is not uncommon to experience some pain and sensitivity after root canal therapy. The purpose of a root canal is to remove the infected or damaged nerve from the inner portion of a tooth. It can take a few days and sometimes up to a few weeks for everything to heal up, and soreness is normal. I would recommend taking over the counter pain medication, and do not hesitate to contact your dentist if you have concerns. I hope this helps. Follow me for more questions and answers.
