Why did I swell after the root canal?

Most of the times, a dead tooth has bacteria and dead pulp tissue, trapped inside it. When root canal treatment is performed the bacteria and dead tissue are pushed out of the root tip and the body reacts to the bacteria and dead tissue. The good news is that after less than a week a person is back to normal. It is quite normal for a person to swell up after a root canal.
