A failed root canal is when your treated tooth experiences some type of complication. Such as re-infection, pain, or breakage in the tooth.
A root canal procedure (endodontic treatment) is one of the last lines of defense when it comes to tooth preservation.
Sharp pain after a root canal isn’t normal. Always speak to your dentist, especially if you’re not able to eat, sleep, or go to work.
Wondering what food you can eat after root canal treatment? After your local anesthetic wears off, start with softer, easier-to-chew foods.
