Pretty much anything you can safely put in your mouth will be fine :)

The tooth that's having the discomfort is the one that's had the root canal started? If it's quite mild then OK, more than that I'd be getting onto your dentist for advice.

Hard to say without looking at it. Anything triggers it? Hot/cold/sweet etc or is it random?

It was just random, it hasn't felt weird today and the discomfort has stopped

Just mention it to your dentist when you go back to get the RCT finished then.
