I have done RCT in one of my wisdom teeth, the reason being it did not erupt completely and got infected. After the procedure, I now find the teeth is little sensitive, when I drink water or rinse after a meal. My doctor has told me to rinse with Luke warm salt water for 3 times a day until it subsides. Is this a normal after implication of an RCT or this abnormal?

Rct could have been avoided n tooth removed as being third molar
Normally the treatment plan for unerupted wisdom teeth is extraction. RCT should not have been done.
if recently you complete the treatment than it may be subside within 1 week and if not than it is not normal.better option if removal of wisdom teeth.

No. After a root canal, the nerves are being removed, there can be mild pain, but definitely not sensitivity. See if the root canal is done completely.
