Hello,

This all depends on where you are in the root canal process. Is this before the root canal procedure was started, in between when it was started and when it was finished, or after the root canal was completed? If it was before it was started, the best thing you can do is get the root canal process started because after the first step your pain should go away. If it is in between when it was started and when it was finished, then you should contact the doctor that started it as there are some things he/she can do to clean it out. If it is soon after the root canal is finished, you should definitely see a doctor as you should not have pain when a root canal is finished. There could be something else wrong with your tooth. If it is long after the root canal was done, then you might have a re-infection of the tooth and need a re-treatment of the root canal.
Hope this helps.

My best to you!
