Re: Debilitaing tooth pain
your tooth shouldnt be hurting after this long, i have gone through so many dental procedures, and although i have never had a root canal, i do know a bit about dental stuff ( i have had 5 teeth pulled and 22 fillings)
i would call the dentist office and let them know what is going on.
the thing with a root canal is they remove the whole root of the tooth and everything inside, so they are actually removing any nerves, so there shouldnt really be any pain at all. also with root canals they are not guaranteed to work and that is why i have chosen to just have my teeth pulled instead of trying to save teeth that will eventually fall out.
most people that i know that have had root canals have experienced problems, and have eventually had to have to root canal redone bc there was a part of the pulp still in the tooth taht they didnt remove, or eventually they have to have it extracted with a hige waste of money.
anyways, it could be infected still underneath the tooth, and in taht case you will need an antibiotic.
please call your dentist and let them know, as you dont want to leave this for too long.
