It sounds like you are beginning to feel better, but if you are still experiencing pain I would recommend returning to your endodontist for a follow up. It's impossible to say if all three root canals should have been done at the same time or before your teeth were prepped for crowns because I was not involved with your case. However, I can say that most dentists would choose the conservative route first. Meaning, a tooth that requires a crown does not automatically require a root canal also, so the prep is done first and if issues arise then a root canal may be recommended). Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

Root canal before dental crown
The root canal will be most of the time because necessary by the moment you will place a crow and it can only be determinate by x-rays and physical evaluation with an specialist in endodontic treatment. Root canal treatment is a procedure where the endodontist remove the pulp of the tooth avoiding the sensibility and pain on it.
