Hi Dear ,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of tooth pain after a root canal treatment which seems to be due to leftover infection even after root canal and due to accumulation of pus below the root tips of the tooth. It could be due to high points and due to traumatic injury or nerve injury.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you to consult an endodontist and your dentist again and get evaluated. Doctor can take X-ray of tooth and can irrigate tooth and start treatment accordingly. Doctor may prescribe antibiotics along with anti inflammatory.

Do warm saline rinses and maintain hygiene of oral cavity.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
