How long can I expect tooth to hurt after root canal retreatment for massive bone lesion? It still hurts after three weeks. : Dentistry
My gum was swollen and pus was coming out (due to a huge infection because of a failed root canal) but after retretament I have no more pus but the gum is still somewhat swollen and the tooth hurts, especially when biting but sometimes hurts on its own or simple when touching it with my tongue.
The discomfort isn’t very great but it’s starting to be annoying as I can’t eat well on that side. I am fine with extracting with the tooth but how much time can I give to settle?
