Throbbing after Root Canal

I had two root canals and some fillings done yesterday and not one of my teeth that canaled is throbbing. If I put ice on it it eases for a while. They were like really infect before having the procedur done so I don't know what's going on? Is it just healing? I've never had one before so not sure if this is normal.

Re: Throbbing after Root Canal

well,your saying its not throbbing ..but i guess you got it back to front and your teeth are throbbing?

well ,it is normal that your gums or teeth are hurting at moment as youve had a few things done also fillings,but ,the pain should settle in a day or two
take some pain killers for now and gargle in salt water
if your still in pain in about 4 days well contact your dentist,and he or she give you anti biotics

Re: Throbbing after Root Canal

I meant my tooth is now throbbing and the tooth wasn't infected.

Ibuprofen seems to be working but still can't chew anything.

Re: Throbbing after Root Canal

You should not chew on that area for at least a couple of weeks! A root canal is serious work and the surrounding area will be quite sensitive for a while.

I agree totally. Unfortunately I had the same tooth on both sides done, so all I was able to eat was soup, room temperature, was so sick of soup!! then I got slammed with a cold and major congestion, so all the areas around where they canaled are throbbing. I was getting nervous that all my teeth need treatments. but its getting better< so Im guessing everything surrounding the area is just irritated from the head cold, and all the work that was done.
