Root canal treatment or RCT is mainly a preservative procedure. In earlier cases, extraction was the only available treatment to get rid of the problems caused by an infected tooth. In RCT, the dentist drills the tooth and clears the channel inside of the infected and purulent pulp matter. This procedure ensures that the patient can use their original teeth in the day-to-day functions, as much as possible. 

Infection in the pulp is the main source of the pain, however, this procedure allows the developed teeth to continue their job without the infected pulp. Still, pain in the oral cavity after a root canal treatment is not unheard of. Let us know five of the reasons why we may have to consult the most proficient dental specialist endodontist in Jaipur:

Inflammation after the operation

One of the commonest causes of pain after a root canal treatment is the inflammation occurring in the oral cavity, site of the RCT, or the enamel itself. Mainly two types of the phenomenon are found to be responsible for this event; either the operation itself causes the inflammation in the teeth, or secondary infection by different bacteria in the tooth ligament can cause the painful inflammation. In both cases, the swelling is observed to subside within a few days on its own. If the pain and the swelling persist, it is time to consult the most effective Dentist in Jaipur for the appropriate actions- medical or surgical. 


This reason is associated with the first one mentioned here. Secondary infection by different bacteria can cause pain in the oral cavity of the patient. The infection may occur during the operation of the teeth, or the infected pulp may be left behind by the dentist after the operation. In either case, the offending bacteria cause an infection inside the dental cavity and this can cause immense pain in the dental regions. Like the swelling, the infection can also reduce after some time as the body’s immune system starts fighting against it. If the infection spreads too much, the most proficient Dentist in Jaipur will prescribe antibiotics. The dose and the consumption of the antibiotics will be prescribed by the dentist on a per-patient basis.

Too large filling

During the RCT procedure, the dentist takes out the infected pulp and cleans the channels completely. After the operation is done, the space will be filled with a rubber-like material. This material, if used more than the needed amount, causes the treated tooth to sit higher. In this condition, the patient will feel pain in the tooth whenever he or she bites down. Contrary to inflammation or infection, this pain will not reduce on its own. However, the dentist can adjust the filling to counter this particular issue during the operation. 

Incomplete root canal

The molar teeth have multiple canals, and during the RCT procedure, each of them needs to be thoroughly cleaned. In Nawal’s Dental Clinic, the most skilled dental specialist endodontist in Jaipur ensures complete treatment without any problem. However, if all the canals are not cleaned somehow, or the doctor misses some of the damaged nerves which ought to be taken out, the patient will experience pain after the RCT. In both cases, the initial pain will not subside easily and the patient will experience pain when the teeth come in contact with any hot, cold, or acidic food. 

Damage to the neighboring tissues

During a root canal procedure, the tissue can get damaged in several ways. Some of the ways can be listed as:

  1. If bacteria or other contaminating organism gets introduced into the oral cavity.
  2. The filling material is used in excess and the flow crosses the root tip.
  3. The surgical instruments used in the RCT slip beyond the root tip and poke the underlying tissue.

In all the above-mentioned cases, the pain in the tooth resolves by itself. The injury in the tissues will need to be healed. The dentist may prescribe painkillers and antibiotics in case of extreme pain and discomfort. In case of constant and ongoing pain, it is better to consult the dentists of Nawal’s Dental Clinic, the most liked institution for root canal repair in Jaipur.

Taking care after RCT

The mishaps occurring during the operation do cause pain and discomfort in the patient. However, the patients also need to take care of their oral cavities and maintain dental hygiene. Brushing and flossing after the main meals is a good practice and should be continued. Also, the patient should stick to the prescribed medication schedule, if any, and consume foods that don’t damage the filling or the teeth operated on. It is best to consult the skilled dentists of Nawal’s Dental Clinic providing top-class root canal repair in Jaipur and follow their suggestions.

SMILE SPOILERS like improper alignment of teeth, spacing between teeth, broken teeth, old fillings, attrition or wearing of enamel of teeth, smoking stains, yellow teeth, black gums, protruding teeth, jaw size discrepancies, gummy smile, fluorosis etc can be corrected and mended using a host of treatments like braces, veneers, bleaching and depigmentation.

Technological advancements are slowly decreasing the need for unsightly braces. Invisible aligners like INVISALIGN have done away with fixed wires and made the treatment invisible. Aligners are removable, transparent, do not cause food lodging, easier to maintain and patient acceptance is also better. Wilkodontics can decrease the duration of alignment treatment to as short as three months. VENEERS are instant smile correction techniques to make your smile radiant with the shape and size to suit your facial structure.

Anti-ageing treatments – restoration of lower facial height lost due to loss of enamel. LASER tooth whitening procedures are long lasting.

Most cosmetic problems also indicate an underlying functional problem – corrections will offer a better quality of life, early detection in childhood can simplify treatment.

BAD BREATH AND BLEEDING GUMS indicate gum disease which will soon lead to tooth loss. It may be due to aging, diabetes, pregnancy or genetics.

Technological advancements like LASERS ensures faster healing, less bleeding. Microscopic Dentistry improves precision. Nowadays targeted treatments and growth factors from one’s own body are also used for rapid healing. Cell culture technology are the latest developments.

Gum disease is usually due to plaque and calculus accumulation around the teeth. If addressed early, the tooth can be saved. Delay in treatment will result in tooth fall.

Sensitivity is usually an early symptom of decay, gum recession, over-zealous brushing or hard clenching or grinding habit.

Technological advancement like LASER Desensitisation, Dental loupes assisted root coverage procedures, tooth coloured fillings can cure sensitivity and save the teeth.

Before blindly following what the advertiser in the television tells, it is mandatory to check for the underlying reason and treat the same. In gum recession covering of the exposed, sensitive part of the root by gum treatments is done. Ignoring the symptom or resorting to over the counter relief measures – almost always leads to tooth loss.

PAIN in the tooth or mouth is usually due to deep decay in the tooth, wisdom tooth eruption, food collection inside gum pockets, ulcers or cracked tooth. The dentist will examine you and may need to take an x-ray to check the spread of infection.

Technological advancements like apex locators, flexible rotary tools, laser root canal, microscope assisted dentistry, have reduced the duration of treatment and the discomfort involved. Precious Metal Crowns improve durability and ensure zero allergies.

Do not use over the counter medication to treat dental pain. Clove oil cannot stop the spread of infection. If the cause of the pain is found early, the tooth can be restored to normal function.
