Pain after root canal
It is not normal to have pain on biting and pressure on a root canal treated tooth after 2 months. This indicates that either the root canal has failed and may need to be redone or there is a crack in the root of the tooth in which case they tooth may not be restorable and may need to be extracted. I would recommend seeing a root canal specialist/endodontist for an evaluation. A cone beam CT scan may be advised to help diagnose the condition.
