I had severe toothache for several days and could not sleep for three nights and my dentist said that i actually need root canal treatment and started root canal treatment on my back molar tooth.
After he did the treatment and the anaesthetic wore off, I noticed that the tooth pain came back and its like its no better than before the treatment was started. My dentist has planned to do stage two of this root canal next week and I due to go back for a 2 hour appointment so that he can do that stage of treatment.
However, I thought that with root canal treatment the pain was supposed to stop but now 2 days after the treatment was started I am still in pain. Is it possible that the root canal treatment has not worked? How long does it take for the toothache to stop after root canal treatment is started?
Thank you for your help.
