Hello Doctor, Yesterday I had my first sitting of rct on right side. Last night I was having severe pain on another side also. (which is also having cavity and rct has yet to be done on that side) because I was not able to eat something more over the pain was so unbearable. So my dentist has done procedure of pulpotec on that side for mean time to eat and to subside the pain. Once the rct on right side has completed then he'll do on lt side. My ques are- 1) is it ok prodecure? Are there any complications or any side effect? 2) he has applied a paste and gum like thing which is quite irritating me in taste (bitter taste) also I feel like heaviness as if it is just superficially attached to my teeth. Sir is it normal? Or when it will get nrml? 3) after this treatment will I be able to eat food on my own choices or not? Still I have to be on semi solid diet? please ans me soon in sequence I am getting very worried thanks for your time and concern.

When a small cavity isn't treated in time, the tooth decays badly that normal filling cannot solve the problem. In such cases, your dentist will probably advise you to undergo, a root canal. When performing a root canal, the dentist will remove the nerves and pulp within the tooth, clean the inside of the tooth and seal it. After this procedure your tooth will not sense anything and should be pain free.
However, in some cases you may still experience pain after root canal and there are four main causes of this pain:
- Swelling of ligament around the tooth: One of the signs that you need a root canal is swelling of the gums. Even after the nerves and pulp within the tooth are removed, the ligaments around the infected tooth may still be swollen. This can take some time before the tissue is normal again. In most cases this is the cause for pain after a root canal procedure.
- Damaged tissue: Part of the root canal procedure is to clean the insides of the tooth. Here the dentist must be very careful to not go beyond the tooth. In some cases the file used to clean the tooth may go beyond the root and damage the tissue there. Another possibility is that the sealant used to fill the tooth may go beyond the root, thus aggravating the tissue. This can take some time to heal and may cause pain.
- Excess filling: After the tooth has been cleaned, the dentist fills the tooth with a sealant. If excessive sealant is filled in the tooth, it may become taller than the surrounding teeth, which puts extra pressure on the tooth and results in soreness and pain. The dentist will have to remove the excess sealant in order to resolve this issue.
- Phantom pain: Phantom pain is rare when it comes to root canal. This occurs when the nerve leading up to the tooth still behaves like it were connected to the tooth despite the nerve within the tooth being completely removed. The peripheral nerves will need to be treated to resolve this issue.
In most cases, these events cannot be prevented. There is also no reason to expect that this is a symptom of your root canal being a failure. Stay in touch with your dentist and brush and floss your teeth regularly. You will soon notice the pain subsiding.
