Can a Root Canal Cause a Gaseous Odor?
i had a root canal on Nov.3 two day later I`ve been experiencing gaseous odor.
Hopefully by now you are feeling better. I'm not quite sure what you are describing, but a gaseous odor should not be related to root canal treatment. I would speak with your dentist/endodontist and/or physician regarding your concern.
