2nd Part of Root Canal -- Help!
I had the first part of my very first root canal done 2 weeks ago. Surprisingly, I didn't feel ANYTHING. I had the second part done this past Wednesday -- I felt a little bit, but nothing too bad. However, I called the endodontist the next day because I had lots of pressure on the teeth in front of the tooth that was worked on. I couldn't even floss those teeth because of the pressure and pain. He said it would take a few days to settle down, but to call him immediatley if I got swollen. It hurts when I bite down, but I'm sure that is to be expected. I'm now three days into this and I really think I should be feeling better by now. I thought it was better this morning, but then, out of no where, it started acting up again. I paged the endo, but I haven't heard back from him yet. I'm starting to freak out, as I don't handle dental stuff very well. Does anyone have any advice?
By the way, I was on antibiotics before and after the first part of the root canal, but not for the second part.
