Dentist 's  Response
Since your husband has undergone root canal treatment as well as extraction of 4 teeth at the same time,chances of developing headache is very high.
I would advice to take rest for a minimum of 7 days.
Avoid anxiety and stressful jobs.
Take complete course of medicines prescribed.
Rinse your mouth after every meals.
Maintain oral hygiene well.
Gargle frequently with warm saline.
Hope this helps.
