I was told it will go away, it was a 2 hour job, ok I will stop whining.
by whom, the point of the root canal is to remove the nerve and pulp, there shouldn't be pain now, not that much anyway
What Should One Expect After the Root Canal?
For the first few days following the completion of a root canal, the tooth may feel sensitive due to natural tissue inflammation, especially if there was pain or infection before the procedure. This sensitivity or discomfort usually can be controlled with over-the-counter pain medications such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Aleve). Most patients can return to their normal activities the next day.
