Default root canal

Your experiences? Just had a root canal. The tooth is still hurting. Isn't supposed to get better?

It takes a bit for it to get better.

You just had the nerves in the roots removed so the dentist drilled way down in your jaw.

So its two kind of pain.
The tooth ache, you should not have since the tooth does not have any nerves.

The other is the pain from actually having this done. Thats the pain from drilling, etc.

How long has it been?

Just today. It feels like the same exact tooth pain before the root canal. I thought there would be relief immediately. I'm taking advil and amoxicillin as before

Depending on how bad the infection was, it can hurt for several days afterward still.
