Root Canal Issues

I just had my third visit to the dentist. He is doing a root canal on my bottom lower canine. I have a "history" with this tooth and chronic infection. After the first treatment, I was in severe pain as it had abcessed. He put me first on Amoxicillin and then onto a Z pack because the infection did not go away. It did when I used the Z pack. I had my second treatment and the canal is filled and was x-rayed. So far so good. I also felt great right after it. I had this done on Tuesday. I woke up this morning and I feel pressure under the tooth near my jaw, in the same spot the infection was. Should I call them today and get back on an antibiotic or take a wait & see attitude? It is Friday, Easter is Sunday and the thought that I might be in severe pain this weekend has me nervous.

What do you think?
Dee

Re: Root Canal Issues

There is pressure under the tooth and very dull aching starting up.

Re: Root Canal Issues

I hope you have a Happy Easter too! I called and they called in another Z pack for me. Hopefully that will knock out any remaining infection and this will stop!
