Hi,

Thanks for asking the query,

After a sucessful root canal treatment the canals are removed and the tooth is completely devitalised so there are no chances of pain.

There are chances of pain radiating from the infected tooth to the cheek, ear and neck ,i would suggest you to get an x-ray done of the affected tooth.
Also look wisdom tooth on the same side if crooked, impacted or crowded can lead to pan in the cheeks.
Another cause is allergic reactions, inflammation of the lymph nodes, any blunt trauma to the face, inflammation of parotid gland, growth such as tumors cyst can also cause such type of symptoms.

I would suggest you to get a complete clinical evaluation by the Dentist to confirm the cause and plan appropraiate treatment, if the tooth is reinfected you habe to go for re-RCT of the tooth.

You continue with the course of antibiotics ans analgesics and maintain a good oral hygiene.

Hope this helps out.

Regards..

Hello and welcome to hcm,
Root canal treatment is the procedure carried out to remove entire infected pulp within the canals.
The pain associated with the tooth usually stops once the procedure is carried out successfully.
But in your case,the pain stilll remains after rct may be due to-
Perforation or ledge formation of canals.
Infected pulp remaining within the canals.
sinus infection.
I would suggest you to get an x-ray of the tooth.
If required re-rct can be done.
Tooth has to be extracted if the pain persists.
Take complete course of antbiotics too.
Take care.

hello ,
thanks for sharing your problem with us.

In root canal procedure all the infected pulpal tissue is removed and canal is cleaned properly so that final filling could be done. the tooth remains asymptomatic for the whole life unless until if any necrotic pulp tissue / extra canal left behind... go for IOPA x-ray.. ( using SLOB RULE ) to rule out any extra canal and ccheck for infection. if antibiotics r not helping then i would suggest to go for re-rct ...
thanks

Dear friend.

Thanks for sharing your concern.

your history suggests that you have referred pain.as you have already visited endodontist.
it could be a pain originating from your ear or neck and affected the whole face on that side.

In my view you must visit your physician once with complete history of pain,like its point of origin,duration.frequency,aggravating factors and relieving factors.

After this a proper diagnosis can be made and hence treatment.

please do not ignore even if it is not a dental pain.

Hope it helps.

Take care.

Thanks.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Two months - long time for symptoms to persist...
It could be injury to the nerve / even an incidental cause with no relation to it
Have a second opinion

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
