How to make your mouth stop hurting after a root canal?

I had a root canal and am in pain.

Asprin can help, but isn't always sufficient for everyone. Ibuprofin, like Advil, is often an effective pain killer, even for oral pain. Topical pain relievers like Oragel also exist, and can help numb the area. Applying ice may also help numb the area and relieve some of the pain.

Try taking some Tylenol for your pain. If it still hurts you should call your dentist and see if he can get you an Prescription for a pain medicine that is more effective. If it's been several days after your root canal something could be wrong and you should contact your dentist right away.
