Re: antibiotics before a root canal
I'm still wondering wether it's ok to have a root canal performed on a tooth with an active infection, swollen and tender gums...I have a cyst like swelling above the tooth. I've only been taking the second antibiotic since this morning and can't tell if this one is working yet, it'll be 24 hours by the time of my appt. Wouldn't it be dangerous to perform the root canal with the ongoing infection???
