Hello sir, After the first procedure (step) of the root canal the swelling has come around the tooth in which RCT is being done. There is severe pain in the tooth also. Can you tell me the causes of this.

Yes it is body reaction to the treatment, take proper antibiotics and analgesics, hope it should be okay. Also rinse with lukewarm water with a pinch of salt in it about 4-5 times daily.

Pain in your RCT teeth is due to incomplete BMP procedure. Take antibiotics & pain killer for reduce swelling and pain. When BMP will be completed your all problem will be cured.
